For a simple design, add an adorable photo and a fun, Valentine’s Day greeting, then cut them in half to hand out.

Idea #2: Lollipop Valentine

You can also make this adorable Lollipop Valentine. I gave my little guy a wrapping paper tube wrapped in tape to hold as a giant lollipop. I set up a paper backdrop, but you could just shoot against a solid wall or de-cluttered  simple space. I added “Happy Valentine’s Day” and his name.

There are a few easy items you’ll need to make these cute Lollipop Valentines:

  • Tube or stick
  • Rail blade or scissors
  • Single hole punch
  • Tape
  • 1 bag of your child’s favorite lollipops

Step 1: Use the rail blade or scissors to cut the cards in half.

Step 2: Hole-punch the top of the wrapping paper tube on the card.

Step 3: Stick the lollipop through the hole and tape it securely to the back.

You can make variations on these, too. Have your child hold out their fist and put a hole punch just above and below their hand. Place a pencil through the photo.  Add a fun caption such as “You are just WRITE for me!”  or “I am Mr. WRITE!”
