Paratrooper “Dropping Down” Boys Valentines Ideas

Finishing up our week of free class Valentine printables, here is one more of our boys Valentines ideas! We can all use more boys Valentines ideas, right? (Although I imagine plenty of girls will be happy to give — or receive — this as well.)

You know those fun plastic paratrooper toys? Yea, we’re pretty familiar with them here—my boys love them. (I think it has something to do with our 22’ vaulted ceilings that allow for plenty of parachute air time?) Anyway, this Valentine is a natural choice for any superkid who likes to throw toys, play army or perhaps sweetly drop down and rescue a lonely heart.

  1. This is, by far, one of the easiest and inexpensive valentine card projects I have ever done. My 3rd grader was capable of assembling them himself.

    – that the pdf easily opened and was ready to print
    – the modern motif
    – the use of something other than candy, as our district prohibits food or candy of any kind for distribution.

    Yeah!! I don’t have to hand out another pencil or eraser!

    Thank you!

  7. Hi. I love the parachute valentine, and actually started making them, but now when I try to open the file it says it won’t work. What can I do to get that link again?
