If you’re new here, you’ll quickly discover that we have a thing for ocean puns. 🙂
Our love for ocean animals + 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 sweet little free printable cards – both full color AND coloring sheets (& mini-envelope template).
Pin it on Pinterest:
All the downloads are free and are in the post below!
PLUS, we’ve made some of them into jpegs and animated GIF’s that you can send digitally! Here’s one for a peek (scroll down for the rest):
The names of the animals are included on each card too, making for that little extra learning we like to throw in.
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 (a splashing adventure that most of the animals in the valentines come from), the valentines can become a treasure of discovery! Kids can use the printable cards to “look up” each animal 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).
