Race Car Valentine

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and my 4-year-old son is SO excited to hand out valentines at school for the first time. He is currently in to super heroes, dinosaurs and race cars and I wanted to be sure to incorporate those interests into his valentines.

I found this super cheap box of tiny race cars on Amazon and thought that was the perfect tiny gift for his class. Add a cute card and some tulle and you have a darling face car themed valentine, perfect for a preschool class.

Below is a quick rundown on how I put these together, including a free card download for YOU!


  • Race car valentine cards
  • Small toy cars
  • Tulle
  • Ribbon
  • Sparkly yarn
  • Hole punch
  • Tape


Start by cutting out the individual valentine cards. Then have your child sign the bottom (I typed my sons name on the card but am also having going to have him sign either the back or a heart to add later….he writes his name way to big to sign the front, haha).

Punch a hole on the left and right sides of the card, in the center.

Weave your tulle and yarn through the first hole going from front to back and then back through the other hole back to front.

Place a toy car on top of the car and add some tape to secure it to the card. Then, tie the tulle and yarn into a big beautiful bow.

And that is all there is to it! You could add a cute heart tag by just stringing it onto the yarn before tying the bow. I promise your little one is going to be SO excited to hand this out to their classmates.

Happy Love Day!
