How To

DIY Valentine’s Day Cards with an Avo-Twist

Ah, Valentine’s Day – the season of celebrating love and making sure your child has Valentine’s Day cards and treats to bring to all their classmates. Have fun bonding time with your child and help them stand out from the pack by making DIY Valentine’s Day cards together!

At a loss for ideas? Create unique, punny cards with a little help from Avocados From Mexico. For a bonus, add a helpful avocado recipe for them to take home to their families, too!

So, grab some crafty items — card stock, glue, glitter, washi tape, old magazines, crayons, markers, whatever you have handy! — and call the kids to the dining room table. It’s time to DIY!

Feed the Troops

Crafting can make a crew hungry, so make sure you’ve stocked up on some edible inspiration! Avocados are available year-round and can be used in every kind of recipe, from breakfast to dessert. For your craft extravaganza, you’ll probably just want some snacks, so check our our favorite kid-friendly munchies recipes here.

And what if you don’t even know how to pick an avocado? We’ve got you covered, whether you need help knowing when an avocado is ripe or how to slice and dice your green fruit.

Making Valentine’s Day Cards

Ok, now that you’ve got your snacks and your supplies, you’re ready to start making those Valentine’s Day cards! Fold a piece of paper in half and have your child draw, collage, or paint an avocado on the front. Then you can write an avocado-inspired message on the inside and slip a recipe in for their parents.

Need some ideas for punny one-liners? Try these:

You’re everything I’ve avo-wanted in a friend.

I like you more than avocado toast. (Include an avocado toast recipe on the back!)

We go together like chips and guacamole. (Obviously, a guacamole recipe is needed here!)

I avo-lutely like you!

Avo great Valentine’s Day!

These homemade Valentine’s Day cards are sure to delight your child’s classmate – and their parents!
