Valentine’s Day Card Starters



Valentine’s Day card stARTers for your students. This resource includes 12 different card “starter” ideas/templates. They are designed to start the creative juices flowing in your students. Some of the starter designs are more intricate than others in an effort to help provide you with some differentiation options.

Students love to be creative and they love to give cards to people they care about – especially around Valentine’s Day. This Valentine’s Day activity will help you foster both of those interests in your students. Each child is given a “starter” to a picture that will then become the front of a greeting card. They will then write a nice message inside and give the card to someone special!

Encourage your students to be as creative as possible and dream up any design they can using the portion of a picture that has been provided to them. This activity will allow your students to show their individuality and creativity and give them a place to “start” making their Valentine’s Day cards.

I love using the card starters with the students. It is a great scaffold and the students gained confidence about making their own cards and spreading happiness! I love using Jenny’s art lessons and I know they lead to great success in the classroom!

The students loved this activity. They worked all week on cards for their classmates. It was a great activity for them to do when finished with classwork and a great art break for a few minutes each morning as they came in. The finished products were great. Will use again next year!
