But back to this set of Printable Sea Creatures Valentine Cards for Kids. Did you know that these cute free printable Valentine cards are super easy and can be printed and prepped the night before the kiddo’s Valentines party at school?
Looking at you, procrastinating mom (and scrambling to print these with you, honestly, LOL!)!
What do you need to make these Printable Sea Creatures Valentine’s Day Cards?
My recommendation is to print these using a high-quality printer on card stock paper.
First, using a high quality printer is going to make you happier–even if that means running to the local print shop and avoiding using your printer at home if it prints blurry and terrible.
You can always maybe try cleaning your printhead first (sometimes that can help). But, if your printer works alright, just set the print to “high quality” and you’ll love it.
Second, using card stock is going to do several things to make your valentines printable cards pop. It’s going to increase the saturation of the ink, thereby making the image crisper.
Then, you’ll also be getting a durable card that’s going to last when you send it off in your kids’ backpacks, but it’s also going to make for a great device to hot glue the treat to–or tape, probably stick with tape.
And my last thought: use a fine-tipped black marker to write the names on the valentines cards. Pencil will wear off in the kiddo’s backpack and a fat-tipped marker will bleed together and make the names illegible. So, fine tipped marker. Do it.
And, there is the big question: what kind of treat (or non-treat) goes with these super cute printable Valentine sea creature cards?!
What Valentines treats go with this printable Valentine card set?
Ok. So, I have thought about this a lot.
This isn’t a printable Valentine card that screams “put me with a juice box” or “this only goes with an applesauce cup”. Because, frankly, neither of those things scream “under the sea”.
As a result, I have come up with a few items (other than raisin boxes, because, honestly they go with everything) that are available on Amazon that you can pair with my sea life Valentines.

What non-candy treats go with this printable Ocean Themed Valentine card set?
Just like with the candy-type treats that could possibly go with this printable sea animal Valentine card set, I have thought a lot about what non-candy treats go with these sea life valentines cards. And, because I’m me and I can’t help but share, I’ve popped in some Amazon links here so you can grab them if you’re a non-candy-treat kinda parent.
