Paper airplane Valentine – free printable blog hop

Hi friends! I’m excited to share a new collaboration I’ll be featuring each month. I’m teaming up with 7 great blogs in a blog hop to bring you 8 new printables (all free) for all the big holidays and special dates this year.

To start the year off, it’s all about Valentine’s Day, classroom Valentines for your little ones to take to school.

For our free printable Valentine, we’ve created a double sided paper airplane that reads: “You make my heart SOAR”. It has a place to write your child’s name and the name of a classmate on the underside.

The inspiration for our Valentine – a paper airplane, came from Cathe Holden and her airmail paper airplane (I love her site). Ever since the Disney short Paper Man, I see paper airplanes in a new way…so romantic! This would be a great Valentine for a boy to take to school in that it has no pink. ;)

Here’s a short How-To video to show you how to fold it up. Once you have it printed on both sides, you will get 4 paper airplanes out of one sheet. Say there are 25 kids in your child’s classroom, you will print out 6 sheets to equal 24 + 1 extra.

I know a lot of moms who like the idea of non-candy Valentines at school since there is always so much candy. Well this paper airplane doubles as “the toy” and the Valentine in one!

    I love this, Kami. My son is in third grade and he approved. We had a little trouble printing from my laptop, so I told him I’d work out the printing while he slept. He said, “Can you email me the link to the video after I go to bed, too?” So here I am. :-)

    Printing worked fine on our desktop computer, BTW.

    I love the paper airplane Valentines…but I am having so many issues with the folding. I can’t help but wonder if they are not printing out correctly so that when I’m finished following the tutorial all the wings and folds are not symmetrical.

      Hi Erica! Oh shoot! I’m not sure what to tell you. We’ve had so many downloads on this printable, and you are the first one to mention this. I’m sorry I can’t help on this. Shoot.

      Hi Erica…it’s probably too late to mention this, but you might check to see if your printer is printing the actual size. I’ve noticed some printers will be automatically set to “shrink to fit”. The printing and the folds are pretty precise, so if your printer is automatically shrinking the print, it will throw off the proportions and the folds won’t work correctly.

      I hope that helps…sorry I didn’t think to put that in the original post.

    Hi Thanks for the airplane idea. My boys loved it. The twins are 4 yrs old and had a blast making them. I only had to show them once how to fold them.. .. But of course they had to give most of them a test flight!!

    Sorry I’m just now replying but yes you are right re: the printer and it defaulting to shrink to fit. Thank you so much!! These are perfect for my son’s class!! :)
