Homemade Valentine’s Cards for School

Does your child’s classroom exchange valentines? Jessie Jane shares two great ideas for homemade cards that are much cuter than the store-bought ones. They’re easy to make, fun to decorate and oh so adorable!

Caterpillar Hearts


  • Construction paper
  • Pencils
  • Glitter paper (available at any craft store)
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Googly eyes (optional)
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch


Cut a strip of glitter paper approximately 1 inch wide and 12 inches long. Fold it accordion style – this is the body of the caterpillar.

Cut out a heart shape and decorate the caterpillar’s face. Kids can use markers to draw on eyes or use googly eyes.

Use a glue stick to attached the caterpillar face to the folded strip. Do a triple hole punch (so it’s large enough for the pencil to fit) through the mouth of the caterpillar and each fold of the strip.
