I’m always on the hunt for printable Valentine’s cards for school or for cute printable Valentines to exchange with friends in the neighborhood.

And yes, these ‘Orange You Glad We’re Friends?’ Valentines are just that!

They include what my son calls mini oranges (clementines!) and the valentine tag is just such a clever play on words.

I always think the more creative a card is, the more memorable it will be for the recipient.

Plus this becomes a little craft project for your child to help you with!

(A child as young as two can help with this.)
