Anytime we can encourage kids to read more, we do. And now that it’s Valentine’s Day we couldn’t resist incorporating reading into these fun printable classroom Valentines for kids. The best part is they are non-candy Valentines, so you don’t have to worry about food and dye allergies.
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!

You’ll totally knock this Valentines Day out of the park!
