February is here! And that means that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I’ve been working on some fun Valentine designs for my son that I am excited to share with you today! Get ready to “catch ‘em all” with these unique Pokemon Valentine cards.
My son, Davian loves holidays! Halloween is definitely his favorite, and he makes sure we know that (during Christmas, he forces us to sing “Halloween songs” as often as we sing Christmas music—just to even it out). But he looks forward to every holiday.
After New Years Day, Davian asked me when the next holiday is. I told him that he would have to wait until Valentine’s Day to get out new decorations. He didn’t like the idea of having to wait that long, so he found some pink and red construction paper and made some Valentine decorations all on his own. So you could say that February 14th is an anxiously awaited date in the Thomas household.
Since Davian is in Preschool this year, he’ll actually have some friends to celebrate Valentine’s Day with! So I thought it would be fun to make him some unique Pokemon Valentine cards that I knew he would love.
If you had told me 10 years ago that Pokemon—the show I watched every day in 2nd grade—would still be popular enough that my kids would love it, I wouldn’t have believed it. But, lo and behold, both my 4-year-old and my (almost) 2-year-old both know who Pikachu is!
To put these cards together, simply glue around the edges (about three-quarters of the way), fill them with candy, and glue them closed. Conversation hearts work really well since they are pretty flat and you don’t have to worry about melting. Smarties would be another good option for those same reasons. I decided to add a surprise Pokemon inside each one as well, and I think it will be exciting for the kids to see who they got when the break it open!
If you don’t want to bother with the gluing and filling with candy, these pokeballs with the heart on them work as Valentine tags as well!
I use a Cricut Maker to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out some other awesome Valentine freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting my Pokemon Valentine cards together for the Poke Hunters in your life. Did you watch Pokemon growing up, or is it just something that your kids enjoy?
