Beautiful frilly, lace adorned, romantic versed Valentine cards are great for adults, but all that effort is lost on almost anyone under the legal age for chewing bubble gum.

What sort of cards appeal to children? Traditionally, children like funny Valentines, and have easily tickled funny bones. You can take lead from jokes that are super silly…perfect for kids!

When I noticed all those cute little faces looking at me out of the packaging window, I thought "Perfect!"
They then inspired me to go online and look for jokes that included beavers, skunks and squirrels. I am including them in the download section if you are interested. But you can choose any sort of pre-made die cuts or make up something of your own. Then go looking for "clean" jokes – the goofier the better!
