I’ve finally done it. I’ve managed to convince all three kids to give out the same eco-friendly Valentine’s Day cards to their classmates. It’s almost too good to be true.

A few weeks ago I decided that I’d encourage the kids to give candy-free and eco-friendly Valentines this year. We’ve been cutting down on our sugar intake at home, and we’ve always been an environmentally conscience. Why not share those values with other kids on Valentine’s Day?

A quick Google search for “eco-friendly Valentine’s for kids” quickly led me to seed paper hearts. This is the perfect eco-friendly Valentine to exchange at school. It’s inexpensive, adorable, and unique. My boys are pumped to pass these out on Valentine’s Day.

Print on card stock for added toughness. You can see my favorite brand here.

Simply cut them out or use a one of these to cut them quickly and evenly.

Attach the seed paper hearts with a dollop of glue or tape.

Easy peasy, right?

The printable looks just like this:

Where to buy seed paper hearts

I bought these seed paper hearts on Amazon.

Mine were under $20 for 100, but there are so many different options and prices.

This is the one I suggest. You can also get other shapes! Check them out below.
