It's valentine time again, and I've got the cutest unicorn valentines to share with you today. (One of them is a narwhal valentine. Do they count as unicorns? The kids seem to think they do.) This is the first year my kids are all too old for valentines, but I can't help creating new printable valentines anyway. It's a good thing I have this blog as an excuse! Since unicorns and narwhals are all the rage these days, I know unicorn valentines will be a big hit at the class party! I have three different design ideas for you, so I'm sure you'll find the valentine that's just right for your kiddo.
Free Printable Unicorn Valentines
My kids may be too old to exchange classroom valentines, but they're not too old to think unicorns and narwhals are fun and cute. I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point, unicorns became a symbol for being unique. Since kids should be proud to be unique and special, bring on the unicorns!
I have three different design ideas for you, so let's get started learning how to create each unicorn valentine. You'll find the free printable at the end of the post.
You'll need a hole punch to create all three valentines. Check out the image below to see where to punch the hole on each printable:
Unicorn Valentines with Ribbon Tails
To create the unicorns with ribbon tails, use the printable unicorn valentines that are missing tails. You'll need curling ribbon (I found the perfect roll with four pastel colors at the Dollar Store), scissors, and tape.
- Print the cards, cut out each valentine, and punch a hole for each tail. Cut four 4-inch pieces of curling ribbon for each valentine. (You can trim the tail later if it turns out too long.)
- Slide all four ribbons through the hole on the front of the valentine and tape them in place on the back.
- Flip the card back to the front and carefully curl each ribbon against the edge of a pair of scissors. I tried both directions, and I think the tail looks cuter with the ribbons curling up toward the top of the card. (Try both ways yourself. Maybe you'll disagree.)
- Trim the tail to your desired length and arrange the ribbons how you like them.
All done! Aren't they adorable? You can easily use these as a non-candy valentine. Just pass them out as-is or add a unicorn or rainbow-shaped toy or trinket. (A piece of candy works, too.)
Unicorn and Narwhal Valentines with Pixie Stix Candy Horns
I seem to have a thing for creating valentines with Pixie Stix candy. I'm not sure why. I guess they just make great arrows, horns, and guitar handles. Check out my Brave and Coco valentines to see how I used them.
These pixie stix valentines are super easy. I'll show you both together since they're both created the same way. Just print the cards, cut them out, and punch a hole for the horns. Slide each pixie stick in from the back. Keep the horn short, and tape each pixie stick in place on the back of the card. That's it. Super easy.
Which unicorn valentine is your favorite? Are you partial to narwhals or unicorns? I love the narwhal valentine, but I think my favorite is the valentine with the ribbon tail. How about you?
