Free Printable Pirate Tattoo Valentines are fun and unique non candy valentines card perfect for kid’s friends or preschool classmates!
Ahoy Matey! This year we are all about pirates for Valentine’s Day with these Free Printable Valentine Cards. Treasure chests, swords, parrots and pirate ships make up these fun friendship non candy Valentines.
They are great for preschool or elementary age kids, but then again I’m pretty sure kids of all ages love temporary tattoos. I know I always did as a kid and secretly still might as an adult.
Now that I have kids, I might not feel as excited about temporary tattoos when it comes to getting them off. It’s hard to resist the joy they bring the kids though. Luckily they now make individual tattoo removal wipes that make it easier to remove and are actually a great addition to these Pirate Valentines.
I am sure there will be years where I buy a bulk pack of fun size candy and just write kids names on them, but I’m still a relatively new parent. That means I get to be the “Pinterest Mom” and make something fun for their daycare Valentines.
Do you remember creating your own Valentine boxes in Elementary school? I vividly remember a rocket ship Valentine’s box I made that I was particularly proud of.
This was truly one of my favorite times of year. Not only did I get to let my creativity shine, I got a bunch of candy to boot! Talk about a creative chubby kid’s dream right there. ?
Non Candy Valentine Ideas for Preschoolers
If you are a fun hating parent like myself and don’t love giving your preschoolers sugar, I have got you covered with these great Non Candy Valentines! Ok, so obviously I don’t hate fun, and neither do you, but we all have our own preferences for our children and that is totally fine.
While I will let my twin 2 year olds have a piece or two of candy on special occasions, which they are sure to be gifted on Valentine’s Day, I don’t want them going overboard.
This was the first time they got to try temporary tattoos. They weren’t so sure about them as soon as they were applied, but they quickly grew on them. How adorable are those chubby little fingers with the sparkling metallic tattoo?!
