This is the Valentine I used for 3 year old Maxwell in 2017! He loves balloons. Balloons = party, and this kiddo loves to party. So much so that when driving down the highway and Maxwell spots a car dealership with balloons tied to the fence he starts asking about cupcakes and and begs to go to the “party”. These free kids valentines cards are perfect for the classroom Valentines party! I made 2 balloon Valentine options one for deflated balloons and one for inflated balloons. I like options!
