Every year. Every year Valentine’s Day sneaks up on me and catches me unprepared! The boys’ birthdays are also in February, so in my defence, it’s a busy month. But here we are. Somehow, with a little panic to kickstart the process, I did manage to come up with a Valentines design in time. So this is a quick post just to share these cute french valentines in case there are other last minute moms out there wondering where to find clever francophone valentines cards. I see you. I got you.

My boys go to a french school. Not french immersion, it’s french school board. French everyone and everything. English stops at the door. But it’s a really wonderful school and I’m so grateful that they are able to attend!
In the past, I have sent english valentine’s cards with the boys, but I always feel weird about it. The school doesn’t insist on French valentines but I’d like to make the effort anyway. It’s hard to find store-bought valentines written in French in my part of the country. And I never seem to have my you-know-what together enough to order some online ahead of time!
(On that note, if you need some clever English Valentines, check out what I did last year! They are also available as a free download as are these Lego Valentines.)
So this year I designed my own. Yes, I speak French, but not well enough to come up with clever puns all on my own. So my sister (who’s much more French than me) helped me out a little with the copy.
The little owls were actually a free download from Creative Market. Every week they have 6 new free downloads, I’ve gotten tons of fonts and graphics this way!
Feel free to print these valentines off and use them for yourself! Just click here to download.
I got them printed at Staples, on 100 weight cardstock. My home printer just doesn’t handle cardstock well. I printed enough for both boys’ classmates and it cost me around $8.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
