Instead of traditional Valentine cards that say who their heart belongs to, we decided this year it’s way more cool to say what their hear belongs to. And that something is BOOKS! There will be plenty of candy coming home from the Valentines party at school, so here is a fun Valentine for kids to pass out that parents won’t mind kids collecting.

These Valentine bookmarks can be from student to student, from teacher to student, or from student to teacher. It’s really appropriate for anyone.

We also encourage you to have your kids pass out an inexpensive book along with their Valentines bookmark. It’s a great way to encourage kids to read more!

The perfect alternative to lovey-dovey Valentines, these make the perfect gift for students and teachers.

Printable Valentine’s Day Bookmark

You’ll Need:

  • Heavy white cardstock
  • Printed Valentine bookmarks
  • Laminator and laminating pouches (a great option if you want to make them extra durable)

Just print your Valentine bookmarks onto cardstock paper and cut them out. As an optional step, laminate them before cutting to make them durable enough for the most voracious readers. You can be finished at this step and everyone will love them. But, if you want to go that extra mile, grab some fun inexpensive books and stick them inside. You’ll totally knock this Valentines Day out of the park!

  2. I like that they are non-mushy! My son was a little embarrassed last year (in 5th grade) with some of the Valentine sayings. He was very selective about who got what.
