Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I’ve been on the hunt for some cool and unique Valentines my son can pass out to his class this year. We still have a bunch of tiny dinosaurs left over from my son’s dinosaur birthday party, so I decided to make my own DIY dinosaur Valentines for this year’s festivities.
I love giving out non-candy Valentines at school Valentine’s Day parties. I feel like the kids already get so much sugar on that holiday, that a fun little toy is probably a better idea than another piece of candy. That’s why I decided to add some toy dinosaurs to my son’s DIY dinosaur Valentines this year.
These Valentines are so easy to make! You’ll only need a few supplies to put together these DIY dinosaur Valentines — most of which you probably already have laying around your house!
Here’s what you’ll need:

To access my free printable DIY dinosaur Valentines, head over to my freebie page and enter the password you received in your email. Download the PDF and print on some heavy card stock. The free printable includes five cards in total — three horizontal and three vertical cards — in two different designs. One design says “ROAR (That’s dinosaur for ‘I like you’)” and the other says “Your are Dino-mite!”
After cutting out each card, you’ll need to punch a couple of holes in each card to pull the ribbon through. I placed the dinosaur on the spot I wanted it to sit, then put dots on each side to mark where the holes should go. Then, I pulled the ribbon through a couple of times to loop it around the dinosaur and tied a bow on top. If you’re worried about the dinosaurs moving around during transport, you could add a drop of hot glue under the dinos before tying the ribbon tight.
That’s it! Simple, right? But just because these DIY dinosaur Valentines are simple, doesn’t mean your’d kid’s friends won’t love them. And you can bet that no one in their class will be passing out the same Valentines to their classmates this year!
