Here is another fun Valentines idea. I picked up bouncy balls at the party store for about a quarter each. My store sold them in packs of 12, but they also had the balls available individually, which I thought was nice in case your kiddo’s class has, say, 26 students, you won’t be stuck buying a whole extra pack.
I couldn’t decide whether I liked the “have a ball” or “make my heart bounce” saying better, so I decided to do them both. I was thinking the “have a ball” phrase might be a better Valentine for boys to handout in class since it’s not too mushy.
The packaging is simple. Pick up some of the mini (3×5 inch) zipper-top bags, often available at local craft stores in the jewelry section. Then print out our free Bouncy Ball Valentine Labels template on white or colored cardstock. Cut out each card, fold in half, then put each baggie between a card and staple.
Since many teachers require kids to hand write their names on Valentines (a fun way to practice handwriting!), we left a blank line on these labels for your child to sign their own name.

This is AWESOME. Such a great idea. Thank you!!
What a great idea for my four-year-old boy. No way he’s going to be wanting to hand out anything with hearts on it!
This is so cute. I just made them for my daughter’s class party and I posted it and your idea on my blog. Thanks so much for the ideas.

Perfect – I will be making these for my boys to give away on Valentines day. Now I’m off to find some cute bouncy balls that will make them happy. Thank you for sharing.
Made these with my daughter for her first Valentine’s School Party. I wanted a non-lovey saying so I came up with this….”Couldn’t let the day BOUNCE by without saying HI to you, Valentine!” I found a bouncing heart clipart and did this on the front. On the back, I wrote “Thanks for being my friend! Happy Valentine’s Day!” along with outlines of hearts clip art and a sentence strip for her name. I’m as excited by the result as she is…thank you for the idea!
I love this idea. But am wondering what size bouncy balls you used
