With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d make some valentines for my Care Bear obsessed toddler. So cute and simple! These Care Bear Valentine cuties can easily be candy-free by taping a heart balloon (like I did) or a fun eraser to the bear’s tummy.
I included the design here so everyone can access the free Care Bear valentine printables for some holiday fun!
The flip side of the card can have a multitude of messages. My favorites are “I think you are BEARY sweet!” for valentines with candy or “You fill my heart BEARY much!” for valentines with heart balloons. Cheesy but cute for little tots. Junie and I had a mini Valentine’s party (with her brother observing from his high chair) where we made these valentines, blew up heart balloons, drank milk and had a little snack. I found the cutest little conversation heart napkins from the Target dollar area and those sunshine plates, pink cups, and striped straws are all leftovers from J’s previous birthday parties.
Here’s a close-up of her favorite Care Bear, Grumpy Bear, with a heart balloon on his tummy. I think it looks so cute! I simply cut a small X towards the bottom of the bear’s tummy, threaded the balloon stem through it and taped it on the backside with some cute washi tape. Sorry guys, I forgot to take a photo of the back. It’s simply the cute washi tape over the balloon stem and her valentine message on the back of the bear’s head. Such an easy craft for Care Bear or teddy bear lovers! Just make sure to print it on cardstock so that it’s nice and sturdy.
