Free Printable Heads or Tails Valentines

Free Printable Candy Free Valentines

Valentine’s Day is just a couple weeks away…have you decided what your kiddos are taking to give to their classmates?  Where we live, kids are not allowed to bring candy with their Valentine.  Growing up that was definitely the funnest part about Valentines, so it make me kind of sad (and glad) that my kids don’t get to do candy.  So I got to thinking, what do kids love even more than candy? You got it – money honey.

Plus, we love a free printable valentine that is super simple, right?  This Valentine can accommodate candy too,  just in case your kids have their heart set on a little sugar :).  I also made two versions, one for the girls and one for the boys. Catch me after the jump, I have the printable and all the details for you!

“Let’s Flip For It” Printable Valentines

Free Printable Heads or Tails Valentines

Do you remember filling out Valentines?  I remember sitting at the kitchen table with an opened bag of conversation hearts, my class list, and a stack of store bought Valentines.  I would look at each heart before putting it in the envelope to make sure that I didn’t put a heart that said “xo” or “kiss” in a boys Valentine.  It was a big deal!  Opening the ones I received from my classmates was just as exciting, wondering what the conversation heart would say to me.

Sometimes it’s easy to pass off Valentine’s Day as just another thing to-do, but when you stop to think about the fun memories you had as a kid with the Holiday, it makes you realize how it is for your kids now.

So now that I’ve wandered down memory lane, let’s get to the Valentine shall we?

Supplies:

  • free printable (below)
  • card stock paper
  • coins (play, real, or chocolate)
  • glue stick and tape
  • little cellophane bag
  • scissors

Here are the two printables I came up with – Destri’s son is giving the same Valentines, so a boy friendly version was in order :).  Just click on the printable you want, this will open it in a new window. Right click, save to computer, then print.

Flip it Valentines Supplies

For our Valentines, we just cut them out and used the glue stick to adhere them to card stock paper. We made a flap type tag to staple over the top of the bags for the version you can write on. For the other, just a simple piece of card stock cut a little bigger to create a border.

Just tape a real, fake, or chocolate coin to the front. Then slip it in a little bag or little envelope.  I used a hole punch to make holes and tie bakers twine for the end of my bag.

For the fold over version, just use a little tape or stapler to secure the tag over the top of the bag.  I love that my daughter can practice her writing skills on this one!

Looking for more ideas? Here are some if my favorite from years past:

Happy hump day friends, we’ve made it to mid week!

Thanks for stopping in,

These are super sweet! As a rule we Brits don’t do the whole class Valentine’s thing, so this is all new to me! I am in the middle of making lots of little cards for my boys to give out. I’ve used some Stampin’ Up items and they are super cute…..simple and hand made. Just as I like it!

Aubrey, I love these! However, I had to let you know that the spelling/grammar on the little fill-in-the-name heart one is not quite right. It should say heads (it’s plural…no apostrophe necessary!) and you’re (contraction for you are… not your). Please forgive me for being so particular, but as an elementary school teacher who would love to use these, I thought it best to let you know in case you should have the opportunity to adjust it. (From what I can see, the arrow version is correct!) Thanks for sharing these! :)

I teach kindergarten in a high-poverty elementary school. I’m planning on using a real quarter with these valentines for my kindergartners. We have a “fancy pencil machine” that some kids visit several times a year, and others, never do. This will be quite the treat to have my class line up with their valentines to buy pencils! Thanks for sharing such a cute idea. I found it as a pin on Pinterest – congratulations!

Thanks for leaving a comment Melissa! I love to hear that something so simple as a quarter to buy a pencil will bring so much joy to some of these kids in your class. Thanks for all you do as a teacher!
