If you’re new here, you’ll quickly discover that we have a thing for ocean puns. 🙂
Our love for sea life + ocean puns equals a match made in heaven that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day cards that can be used as lunchbox notes too!
So we’ve taken 18 ocean animals from our children’s books and transformed them into a sweet little printable download that include:
- 18 (3 pages) full color cards
- 18 (3 pages) coloring sheet cards (same designs as full color cards)
- envelope template
They’re available in our shop as a digital download here:
They’re perfect for kids to give to their classmates & teachers, especially with our DIY envelope template (or just fold and seal with a sticker!)
Spread smiles and drop them into someone’s lunchbox, backpack, work bag, desk…you get the idea!
The names of the animals are included on each card too, making for that little extra learning we like to throw in. (Want to dive deeper? Check out our Ocean ID Book.)
PLUS, we’ve made some of them into animated GIF’s that you can send digitally! Here’s one for a peek (scroll down for the rest):
But don’t let the learning stop there: these undersea valentines can also be used as a wonderful springboard activity into the ocean with the help of our books.
Especially when paired with A.B. and the 7 Seas, the valentines can become a treasure of discovery!
Kids can use the printable cards to “look up” most of the animals in the book, finding out more about each one.
Not only is the story exciting, but all of our illustrations are super colorful and hand-drawn & painted lovingly by the two of us! (Eve + Rett = Everett Taylor).
