How do you feel about homemade valentines?
I’ll confess when my kids were in preschool we loved to make them together. We had so much time and it was a fun activity to do together.
But then one went to elementary school. And then two. And then we were sending in valentines for their class and the class next door!
My kids loved making them, but it started to become one more thing on our to do list, instead of a fun way to spread joy to their friends.
Which is why I love these semi-homemade super cute free printable Starburst candy valentines!
They check all the boxes for Valentine’s Day…they’re easy, the kids can help make them for their friends, and they’re totally adorable!
How to Make Starburst Candy Valentines
- small clear bags (approx 4 to 4.75 inches)
- Starburst candies
- free printable You Make My Heart Burst toppers
- stapler (tape or hot glue optional)
Don’t go crazy looking for the perfect sized clear bag. Buy what you can find for a good price and make it fit when you staple it!
What to do:
Print out as many copies of the toppers as you need and cut them out.
Fill the clear bags halfway with Starburst candies.
Fold the toppers in half.
Fold the bags down to the desired height and place the toppers on top of the bags.
Staple, tape or hot glue the free printable Starburst candy valentines on top of the bags.
Let the kids write love their names on the back with markers or pens.
Now you’re ready to pass out to friends!

Think your kids would love these but don’t have the time or inclination to make them this year?
