army valentines + free printable...

My little Ezra is really excited to give all his little friends in his kindergarten class a little Valentine.

I wanted to do a non-candy Valentine this year, because they will already get so much candy.

We decided to give his little friends a little toy army guy on a card that says, "I am so glad we are in the same troop!"

To make the army valentine cards, you will need to download the army valentines by clicking here.  (Be sure to click in the blue box area that says, Click here to start download from sendspace, ignore any other area that says download here)

Print them off onto thick cardstock paper. (I chose kraft cardstock paper because I liked the look of it, but white is also fine!)
After you click the link to download the file, and be sure to click on the blue box that says, "Click here to start download from sendspace."  (please email me if you are having a problem downloading it, you will need the latest version of Adobe PDF)
After you download and print the card, cut them out.   Next, gather your army men, twine to tie them on, (or glue dots work).
Tie on your little army man in the middle of the card, but punching two holes from the back, and stringing the twine through and tying it off.
This would also be fine to glue on with glue dots if you don't want to tie them on!
Have your little one address them to their Valentines, and they are all set to pass them out to their little friends!

Enjoy!  Happy Valentines Day!

Oh, I soooo love these. I think I must be slow, because I cannot find the correct link to download the cards though :(

Thank you so much! These are absolutely wonderful. My two little ones are army addicts and can't wait to use these for their Valentine's parties. :)
