It's an easy task going to the grocery or department store with the kids to pick up Valentine's Day cards to hand out in their classrooms. It's a tradition for most, and sure it's fun; but compared to bonding through creative activities, it really doesn't cut it. I understand. You're busy. But c'mon now. There's not much more important than creating happy memories, and then saving money while your at it. I'm not saying to sacrifice quality in the face of frugality. Mention free Valentine's Day card templates and some parent's may scoff, "What?! Are you serious?!" Ignore that. There are multiple sites online with adorable free Valentine's Day card templates as well as activity and crafting ideas that can work to create personalized gifts much better than store bought. Thoughtfulness is an important lesson to be learned. You can't but that in the $1 special aisle.
I've compiled a list of different sites that offer free Valentine's Day card templates you can download and print from your home computer.
