Busy parent? Forgot that Valentine’s Day comes just as soon as the New Year hits? Don’t worry! This Valentine’s Day applesauce cup free printable digital file will save your day (or late night!).
These cute valentine’s day cards provide non-candy valentine which is a great alternative to traditional candy valentines. Who doesn’t love a healthier option?! A fun snack that’s great for elementary age kids or preschoolers – keep reading so you can be head of the class.
FREE PRINTABLE APPLESAUCE CUP VALENTINES DAY LABELS
To get ready for the Valentine’s Day party you will need to download the free printable PDF file that I created for you and the small cans/containers of apple sauce that come in a multipack. Scroll down and enter your email address to grab your file.
There are six applesauce containers labels per sheet. Three labels that say “You’re the apple of my eye” and three other labels that say “You’re awesome sauce”. The six applesauce cup labels will adhere best with sticker paper — but I’ll get to that! Please note, you will need at least Adobe Reader on your computer to view these printable tags.
You may be running behind so don’t worry, this is a smooth and quick project. Enter your email in the form below and download the file to your computer. Once you have the instant download downloaded, unzipped, and saved to your computer, you will need to print out the download on your home printer or at a print shop/copy shop. This download is a great idea if you have a lot of kids to treat. Mass production! YAYYY…
Here’s a list of the supplies you’ll need:
- Applesauce Cups – I grabbed the Good & Gather from Target, but any 4oz cups will work. I also got cinnamon and ate some while doing this so…watch yourself! AND don’t judge me haha
- Sticker Paper, White Cardstock, or White Copy Paper
- Hot Glue Gun or Adhesive of Choice (if not using sticker paper)
- Printer of your choice – I recommend the Epson Eco Tanks
HOW TO ASSEMBLE VALENTINE’S DAY APPLESAUCE CUPS LABELS
I like to print on white cardstock or sticker paper, but if you only have white copy paper (printer paper), that’s just fine. We will make these homemade valentines work so your kids will still think you’re the Pinterest mom we all want to be. I also included a cut file you can upload into your cutting machine.
Once you print the printable files, you can cut the labels out. To cut the cute cards, I use my paper craft scissors, craft knife, or a 3in circle punch. Use what you have on hand to keep it easy on yourself for this valentine idea. As a reminder, the white card stock will be thicker than the copy paper.
Once each of the free printables are cut out, you can glue the printable cards to the top of the applesauce cups. If you used sticker paper, you will not need glue but if you need an adhesive – white glue, tape runner, double-sided tape, glue dots, or kraft glue will work. A little bit of glue/adhesive will go a long way. I used my glue gun and glued around the circle edge of the label.
Here’s a tip – place your adhesive only on the edge of the circle, it will stick better!
Again, use what you have on hand. This is a very affordable, non-candy, healthy valentine for you to get done quickly.
Complete as many applesauce cups you need. This printable is for personal use, but use it as many times as necessary! Most of us parents have more than six kids to a classroom for the Valentine’s Day Party. No party in the classroom? Make it a party for your kid and pop one into their school lunch on Valentine’s Day.
A great way to make this a fun activity with your kids is to have them write their name on the From line. Adding in the kids name makes this a fun editable kids valentine template for your family.
If you don’t have any applesauce cups on hand, an alternative is to make these into adorable tags with a hole punch. Take some baker’s twine and tie them around an apple sauce pouches, apple juice, or an actual apple for a healthy snack.
Thank you for reading and grabbing your free printable! I hope you and your kids love it! Let me know your thoughts below.
Sending lots of love to you this holiday.
