Valentine's Day as a child rocks. Before the teenage angst sets in, before we start worrying about having someone to call our own on February 14th (and what to get them, if we do), Valentine's Day is a pure, fun holiday that's all about sharing sugar and small trinkets with classmates during an epic classroom party. We all remember coloring a shoebox or brown paper bag with red and pink hearts and excitedly opening it up on the way home to see all the ways our friends showed their love that year. 

Grabbing store-made cards themed to a favorite cartoon character or movie franchise is always a good option for busy moms and dads. But for those looking for a super special valentine that will stand out from the bunch and have kids reminiscing on the playground long into March, an easy homemade valentine is the way to go. 

We've rounded up 20 DIY valentines that are perfect for spreading love and good feelings to the whole class. These DIY valentines are distinctive and cool, but also won't leave parents and kids sobbing over the kitchen table long after bedtime on February 13 (we've all been there!). 

From sweet treats featuring Smarties, Starbursts, and store-bought cookies to non-food options like glowsticks, lip balms, and rulers, there's sure to be a Valentine's Day item in this bunch that even the most selective kids will be excited to bring to school. Click through to see them all, and get ready to spread the love!
