Printable Valentine’s Day Cards for Kids

Guest Author - Kim Lynch

In the U.S. there is a long tradition of exchanging gifts and flowers on Valentine‘s Day, but the Valentine Card didn’t really catch on until the Mid-Nineteenth Century. Around 1850, Esther Howland began to produce elaborate, romantic Valentine Cards incorporating paper lace and embossed floral die cuts into her designs.

Although commercial cards were already available in the U.S., Howland’s colorful cards managed capture the beauty and romance that epitomized the Victorian era. Her cards were quickly embraced by the public and soon she found she could hardly keep up with the demand.

Valentine cards continue to outsell cards for every other holiday except Christmas and children especially love to give and receive Valentine cards and candy.

If your child wants to play an active part in selecting and preparing their valentines, there are a wide variety of free, printable cards available online. These cards come in handy regardless if you need a few quick cards for some drop in friends or enough cards for an entire classroom.

Below you will find websites that offer a wide selection of free, printable cards that will appeal to all tastes and ages. Some of the sites such as HP and Canon offer a little extra, but you'll need to search the site to find them. HP has coloring pages, book marks and even valentine boxes. Canon also has an assortment of crafts and a nice selection of printable, decorative envelopes.

While cards are still the most popular way to say Happy Valentine's Day, you may want to consider sending an ecard, too. See my article Free Valentine E-Cards for a list of free ecard services.

Tab browsing is the easiest way to view and open the links below. Simply right click on the link and select "open a new tab.". This will open the web page in a separate tab while keeping this page open. It's a great way to view multiple sites at once.

Nick Jr. offers eight printable cards with their most popular characters including Dora, Blues Clues and Diego. These cards will definitely appeal to younger children.
