Create a Valentine’s Day Zoom background. Your kid can spice up her video chat background to celebrate the holiday. Sites like Canva offer a variety of customizable templates to choose from as well as some premade Valentine’s Day backgrounds. Or let your child unleash her creativity to design her own!
Mail Kids Valentines to Classmates and Teachers
Mail a personalized postcard with PrintArtKids, a unique and adorable way for kids to send handmade valentines to their classmates and teachers. Once your child creates their work of art, upload it to the site and customize it with a Valentine’s Day greeting. It’s then transformed into a postcard. Simply add a stamp and pop it in the mail. That’s it!
Make a Valentine’s Day card to send in the mail.
Most schools offer a directory of student names and addresses. Together with other class parents, set up a card exchange, where students mail each other a handmade valentine (older kids will love this DIY illusion Valentine!). This way, your school supports the USPS and the children get to experience the joys of receiving physical mail.
Price: Varies, depending on subscription model or one-time kit purchase
This is a fun-filled baking kit that makes for a unique Valentine’s Day treat. It’s shipped right to your door and includes a creative recipe, ready-to-go ingredients, and a variety of crafts to enjoy. If timing allows, this can be a special class activity held via video chat. Or your child can create the treats, package them up, and deliver them to his classmates (the risk of getting COVID-19 from food or packaging is very low, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as long as you practice proper food prep safety protocols).
