Super cute printable school Valentines
With Valentine’s Day almost a month away, I thought I would start posting some fun crafts ideas, recipes and printables for you. YEA! I know some people think Valentine’s is a lame holiday… but I love it! It was one of my favorite holidays to celebrate as a kid. I always loved getting my class list from my teacher to make school Valentines. I loved writing all the kids names on my handmade Valentines. Of course I had to make a cute “Valentine mailbox” too. 😉
Today I’m sharing this “so glad we’re in the same shool” free printable. I love how they turned out. I added it up and they only cost me about .15 cents a piece. SA-WEET! My son is super excited about these. He may have already ate his. 😉 This printable school Valentines was inspired by Faboolous. I just love this fish swimming in the sea. Hope you love them as much as I do! 🙂
Printable school Valentine
- FREE printable download below
- Medium size clear bags (found at craft store)
- Red Swedish fish (gold fish would work too)
- Red twine or ribbon
1. Download your free printable and print it out on card stock paper. You may want to take these to a copy store if you don’t have a colored printer.
2. Cut around the grey line.
3. Have your child (or help them) write their name on the printable.
3. Place fish inside a clear bag with printable and then tie with twine or ribbon. They do make small packages of Swedish Fish you could use, if your school won’t allow opened packages.
Here’s the gold fish so you can see that way too.
That’s it. So super easy and stinkin cute! I’d love to know if you end up using these. Please send me an e-mail if you have trouble downloading.

Thank you for the printable… it is soooo cute! However, I’m having issues with the link. It can’t find the file. Any advise?
Hey Monica! THank you! Sorry you were having trouble downloading. I’ve added a new source, which works much better. http://i1284.photobucket.com/albums/a580/Jamielyn_Nye/FishbowlPrintablecopy-1copy_zpsaea5b746.jpg
This is adorable, but I am getting the same error “this file has been deleted or is unavailable to you”
Thanks for sharing!
So sorry about that. I’ve uploaded to a new source, box is having troubles. Here is the new link: http://i1284.photobucket.com/albums/a580/Jamielyn_Nye/FishbowlPrintablecopy-1copy_zpsaea5b746.jpg
Got it. thanks so much – this is definitely something I can handle 🙂
I had the same problem when trying to download the file… Loved this idea and would like to try it for my kids’ classes.
Here is the new link: http://i1284.photobucket.com/albums/a580/Jamielyn_Nye/FishbowlPrintablecopy-1copy_zpsaea5b746.jpg -enjoy! 🙂
These are so cute!! However, when I go to download them, box.com tells me this file “has been deleted or is unavailable to you” – am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for such a cute idea!
It did the same for me too!
Thanks Emily! 🙂 Try the direct link here: https://www.box.com/s/fxifqtepw6rqgauc7iow …you may need a box.com account. The account is free though. Let me know if it still doesn’t work.
That worked – thank you!
Thank you for sharing and so early!! What kind or what size of clear bagies do you recommend?
Hey Kristina! The small clear bags from Michaels (about 3 in wide) worked great!
This is the cutest thing I have seen in ages! Thanks for this fun, new idea!
This is so adorable! Pinned this so I can send them into my sons classroom!
Super duper adorable! Thanks for the freebie!
Thanks so much! I’ve already printed and have shared with others. Adorable!
So cute! Thanks for sharing!
love these valentines! thanks for the template 🙂
I love this idea! so cute. having trouble with the download tho. :o(
Hey Stephanie! I just checked and it was working on my end. Try using google chrome, that should fix it. Open image in new tab and then save the image to your computer. Hope that helps! XO
These are so fun. Saw some in Family Fun mag too! Love em!
Thank you for sharing this with all of us. I always love your printables and when I saw this on Pinterest I just had to download it. It’s perfect for my son’s school that doesn’t allow candy. We can do Goldfish though! Thanks again. I always appreciate your generosity of everything you share with us!
When I print the 4 fishbowls, they only fill half a page. What am I doing wrong? I need them bigger. Love the printable! Thanks! 🙂
Hi Alyssa! When printing, make sure to select “full page” in the printer settings. Hope that helps!
Alyssa, not sure if you figured it out but I went into my page set up and flipped the pic to be horizontal instead of vertical and adjusted the fit, it then printed all 4 on a full page!!!!!
Love this idea! I’m making them for my daughters class this weekend!
I absolutely looooooooove this idea!! … thank you for the freebie; it’s just too cute 🙂
Hi, these are great! Can’t wait to use them. I did print them out and the fish bowls measure almost 5 inches wide. I bought some clear plastic bags at JoAnn’s and they’re only 4″ x 6″. I didn’t realize they wouldn’t fit. Does this sound right? I saw that you recommended the 3″ bags from Michaels, but I’m not sure how that would work (unless my fish bowls printed out too big). Thanks!
Hey Sarah! The bags stretch quite a bit when you open them up. I used the smaller ones too. 🙂
Oh great! I hadn’t opened them in case I had to return them. Thanks!
Love this! My daughter is diabetic and just started school, so the goldfish will be perfect for her!!!!!
These are adorable! I have a little 4 year old that would love these for his class.
VERY cute and original! Gonna give these a shot for my son’s Pre-K class for sure!
wow! so simple yet cute! I have to make these for half my school (not really.) but they’re pretty easy to do! i love the idea.
I’m glad you like them Esmeralda! I’m sure your school will love them! 🙂
Hi Jamielyn! These are cutest Valentines I have seen so far! Facebook is notorious for not notifying page owners when I tag them and share their stuff, so I thought I would stop by myself and let you know 🙂 These were a hit with my Facebook audience! https://www.facebook.com/CraftsbyAmanda/photos/a.353593675216.349539.323548680216/10153811891695217/?type=1&stream_ref=10
Thanks for the feature Amanda! I’m glad you liked the Valentines! 🙂
Thank you so much for creating this! My son thought it was cool so we printed some off for him to use as Valentine’s at his school. This mom sure appreciates the help in being creative. 🙂
I’m glad you liked these printable valentines Shannon! Hope his class likes them too! 🙂
LOVE these! Perfect my daughter’s 1st grade class! Thanks so much for sharing for FREE!
You’re welcome Lillian! Hope her class likes them! 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing this…for FREE! I was determined to do this idea, but as inexpensive as possible…you made that happen!
You are so welcome! Thanks for stopping by Jennifer…happy love week! 🙂
Thank you so much for doing this! As a busy mom of four, I’m so glad that someone else is doing the creative work for me!! 🙂
I’m glad you like them Kristen! It definitely saves a lot of time finding free printables online! Happy love week! 🙂
Thank you so much! No problems here with printing or downloading. Worked great. 🙂
Thank you! We made these for my daughter’s preschool class. So cute!
You’re welcome! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Thanks for the print out! My daughters school only allows packaged store bought items to be given out, so we are modifying the idea a little. We printed out the cards and are (carefully, as not to break the seal) to individual snack size packages of goldfish. She is really excited to give them to her friends!
That should say stapling them to the goldfish packets, oops.
Sounds darling! These are perfect for printable tags too, glad you were able to still use them! 🙂
I am having trouble printing these amazing valentines…. Any suggestions?? I get to a page that shows them but I still can’t print the…please help … My son has his heart set in these for Friday!!! Thank you!!!
Hi Laura! I’m sorry you are having trouble printing these! Send me an email at [email protected] and I would be happy to send you the file! 🙂
These are very adorable!!! Was wondering if you can edit the text ” I’m hooked on you!!!” or some other text. My daughter would love to give it to her aunt/unlce and grandparents. Thanks
Hi Judy! I’m so sorry but we only have the graphic. We designed these printables last year so we don’t have the file to change the text anymore!
Just printed these and can’t wait to put them together. I have been looking for something that can be used for Preschool that doesn’t involve Candy so I can give all the kids ranging from 1 to 4 the same valentine!!! I am going to use the rainbow goldfish crackers! Thank you!!!
The rainbow goldfish will be darling! Glad you can put them to good use! 🙂
I made these for my 2 year olds classroom with goldfish! they were a big hit! Thank you so much.
How fun, two year olds would LOVE these! Thanks for leaving a comment Allison! 🙂
These are so cute!!! Is it possible to change up the text? My daughter would like to send it to her grandparents. Thanks
Hi! I’m so sorry but we only have the graphic. We made these valentine’s last year so we don’t have the file the change the text anymore!
Ok Thanks for replying.
Hi! I love this Valentine idea! I made them for my 4 year old daughter’s little classmates and everyone loved them! I was wondering: what brand of twine did you use? Yours looks so nice and thick! Mine is thin- I had to double it up to make it look nicer.
Hi Elizabeth! I like Divine Twine or thetwinery.com…thick and durable! 🙂
This is such an AMAZING idea! Thank you for sharing. I am currently printing out the fishbowls in preparation for Valentine’s Day. It will be here before I know it!
I’m so glad you like these Valentines! Thanks for commenting Cortnei! 🙂
When I print these they are on 2 separate sheets of paper and I only get one. what am I doing wrong? I want the sheet of 4 like the example. Debbie
Hi Debbie! You should get 4 fish bowls on a page. Maybe check your printing options to make sure everything is set right. If you are still having trouble, I would recommend taking it to a copy center! 🙂
These are great! My son is so excited to hand them out. Thanks so much for sharing. You’re site is wonderful!
LOVE this!! Thank you so much! I’ve been looking for a fun/cute valentine for my 2-1/2 year old’s preschool class and this is just perfect!
I love these, absolutely adorable! 🙂 I included them in a roundup of our favorite classroom valentines for this year. Thanks for sharing!
So cute! I’m making these for my 3-year-old’s preschool party! Thanks for sharing!
I love doing different crafts for the grand kids .
Thank you soooo much! Using these for my 3 1/2 year old and 18m old’s classes — adorable (and easy)! 🙂
Having trouble downloading fishbowl valentine.. 🙁
Thanks so much- printing went perfect!! Thankful for this link!!
These are adorable! They fit in perfectly with our fish theme this year! “We swim together” Thanks so much!
I thought these were so cute years ago when you posted them and this year my little one is in the “fish class” at school. I’m so glad the post is still up! Thank you for your creativity; you are making us look good this year!
Thank you so much for sharing! We did these last night and used goldfish since my son in daycare still. They were a hit the moment we walked in 🙂
Thanks for sharing your wonderful crafts! You saved Valentine’s Day!
I just thought I’d pop on over to let you know that I gave a shout out to these cute valentines on my diy valentine post today. You are more than welcome to come give it a peek 🙂
Thank you, Jennifer! 🙂
Can you email them to me? It won’t let me print.
Send me an email at [email protected] and I can try and send it to you via email. 🙂
These were perfect for my daughter’s class party! Thanks 🙂
So glad you could use them! 🙂
