Valentine's Day Matching Game

I really really love printables.  I love finding blogs that offer great ones, especially for free.  Who doesn't love free?

So, here is Little Renn's first printable - a Valentine's Day Matching game!  My daughter loves to play matching games.  Who doesn't?

Two notes:
  • I don't have Illustrator anymore, so I'm not able to work amazing magic in *gulp* Publisher.  
  • I also don't have a colour printer.  I got sick of paying for ink, so I got a laser jet.  So no fancy photos or set ups in this post.  Just the basic guts.

Here's how you do it:
* Click here to download the matching game.
* Print it (colour is better).
* Cut them out.  (Scissors, punches, x-acto knife - whatever works for you.  You'll get the nicest edges from punches or an x-acto).
* Mix them up and play!  If you want to be fancy, get a cute bag or box for them.

Here are some alternative uses for the cards if matching games aren't really up your alley.  If you're older than 3, this is probably you.
  • Cupcake toppers
  • Mini-valentines
  • Glue them to a valentine mailbox.
  • Make a garland.

I'd love to know what you think!  Leave a comment on the blog or on Facebook!

  1. I can think of lots of things to do with these cute printables. Thanks! BTW have you considered one of the free software subs for Illustrator? I found an interesting article here:
