How to Put the DIY Monster Valentines Together
Step 1: Download and print the free printable monster valentine cards.
First you need to download and print the valentine cards. The cute cards come in both color and black and white versions, so your kids can color their own valentines for their friends if they want.
I recommend printing the cards on white card stock, because then they will sit up better and they will be sturdier after you add in a piece of candy.
I printed mine on 65 lb. white card stock. If you’re printing at home, that’s probably the heaviest weight that your printer can handle without jamming.
Step 2: Cut out the valentines.
You can even have your kids cut out the valentines themselves for some fine motor practice. Not to mention, this is a great way to keep them busy for a bit!
Step 3: Fold the monster valentine cards.
After all of the cards are cut out, it’s time to fold them so that they are 3D. Simply fold on the two dotted lines to form the open mouth.
Here’s what they should look like folded:
Step 4: Tape a piece of candy to the inside of the monster valentines.
Use a piece of Scotch tape folded over itself. Place the tape on the bottom side of a candy bar or a small toy and attach it to the monster card. You can tape the goodies right under the wording on the monster’s mouth, so that the cute sentiments are still visible.
Don’t want to use candy? Here are some other goodies that you can attach to the valentines:
- mini slime containers from Dollar Tree
- mini monster finger puppets
- mini containers of Play-doh
- small pack of crayons
- the small individual packs of Oreos
Or you can also leave the monster cards as is… no candy or toy necessary.
Here’s what your finished valentines should look like:
