Fun Valentine for Kids + Free Printable!

G loves – I mean really, really, really loves — the big, punch ball balloons.  I keep a bag of them at the house, at.all.times.  (Thanks to Wanda for introducing him to them and to Didi for keeping the flame alive!)  When one deflates or goes “bye bye,” we blow up the next one.  And, typically, when a holiday rolls around that involves giving something to other kiddos, I try to think of things that G is really into at the moment.  Naturally, when I started to mentally nosh on cute Valentine ideas for the little man one of the first things that came to mind was, yep, the punch balloon.

So…here’s what G will be giving his buddies this Valentine’s Day.

I love the way these came out — I think almost as much as G loves punch balloons. {wink}

This project was pretty easy-peasy, too.  I designed a fun little card in Photoshop, printed it on super-heavyweight cardstock and knotted a punch balloon through two, 1/2-inch sized holes I put into the left-hand side.  Doneskies!

Tip: You can find punch balloons at most party supply stores as well as in the party supply isle of Target, near the greeting cards.

And…guess what?!?!?  I’m offering the card as a FREE printable.  That means YOU can make these even easier than I did.  Woohoo!

Have a marvelous Valentine’s Day and, most importantly, don’t forget to hug, kiss and appreciate the ones you love!
