Harry Potter Valentines (Plus Hermione, Ron, and Ginny) - Free Printable

Usually we're pulling together Valentine's the night before.  This year we're ready 3 whole days early.  YES!

If you're a regular reader, you know Harry Potter has been on the brain in our house lately after Katie's Harry Potter birthday party.  Katie's currently reading book 7, so it will be interesting to see what book series she gets involved with next.



Anyway, when I saw these Harry Potter themed Valentine's on Pinterest a couple weeks ago, they grabbed my attention.  I was a little worried that a lot of second graders might not be very familiar with many of the characters since only a handful of my daughters classmates have read the books.  Plus, many of the movies are a bit scary for young kids, so they might not recognize the movie characters anyway.  (We've still only let Katie see the first two movies.)  I figured that Harry Potter and Hermione would be pretty recognizable though, and thought these would be fun Valentine's that match Katie's interest right now.

And is is actually what the sofa looked liked as Katie was signing her Valentine's...this wasn't a posed picture.  She had to stop reading book 7 to do her Valentine's and there's book 4 where  I left it after reading while feeding the baby...yeah, we've got Harry Potter coming out of our ears.

So I cooked up two of my own version using images I found online and the Lumos and Harry P fonts.

Katie is giving the Harry Valentines to the boys.

And the Hermione Valentines to the girls.

I printed them out on some white cardstock and then cut them with my quilting ruler and rotary cutter (although scissors would work just fine.)

And I've got free downloadable Harry Potter Valentines (click here) for you!  I've recently updated the files to include Ron and Ginny versions.

If you'd like the images to resize for yourself, here they are.  (But if you want them already formatted and ready to print, click on the PDF above.)

After helping Katie get her Valentines designed and printed, it was time to start on Seth's.  We used an old standby...the Heartbreaker Valentine's from Dana of MADE.  (We made these when Katie was in kindergarten.)  They just seem like the perfect boy-kindergarten Valentines.  Seth loved getting to help cut them...and it was nice to use someone else's design for once.
And Anson definitely approves.


What Valentine's are you using this year?

  1. So cute! Perfect timing, after the bday party. And Seth's friends will be thrilled with the candy inside the heart breaker valentines. (Such good fine-motor skills, too.)

  2. okay, the valentines are brilliant....but I just had one of those moments when you slap your head and say D"OH really loud. The rotary cutter!!! And quilting guide!!!! oh my gosh! I don't want to tell you how many paper cutters I've bought and just not been thrilled with....off to rummage through my unused and dusty quilting supplies!

    1. You probably need to feed your paper in the other direction for printing on the second side. Let me know if you're still having trouble. I tried to email you, but your email address is not connected to your profile.
