Best Disney-themed kid-friendly valentines

There are only two weeks until Valentine's Day! For me, that means it's time to browse the Internet for ideas to make simple and inexpensive Disney-themed valentines. Pintrest has been one of my favorite resources this year for kid-friendly creations. Here are some of my favorite finds.

With the digital release of "Big Hero 6" this week, lovable Baymax is sure to be on kids' minds. OneCreativeMommy.com offers these free printable wrappers for packages of Tic Tacs, which are a great representation of the hero. Click on the link for instructions on how to print the wrappers. Then, cut them out and glue to the boxes. There's even a spot to write "To" and "From" on the back of each box.

This self-professed valentine-loving-mama also offers several types of "Frozen"-themed cards, too. I'm a sucker for the bag of edible snowman parts, but if your child goes to a school that requires all food that is shared in the classroom be sealed upon arrival (like mine do), this Olaf Warm Hug valentine is a cute alternative. Simply use the free printable. Cut out, writes names and attach a Hershey's Hugs candy to each card.

Another blogger, restlessrisa.com, came up with this idea for Mary Poppins-themed valentine cards and treats. She is making the card design available as a free download, because the cards are intended for personal use. (That's true of all these Disney creations -- they cannot legally be used for commercial purposes.) The spoons can be ordered online ($3 ofor 48) in a variety of colors. Then, she used pink candy melts (heated in the microwave) and sprinkles to create the tasty treat. As a bonus, she has two other downloads for Mary Poppins valentine cards.

And who could resist these Disney Villaintines that were shared on the Disney Parks Blog last year? With the increased popularity of the Disney villains the past few years, designs like these are sure to have widespread appeal - especially with older kids.

When it comes to ideas for creating clever, yet simple, valentines for kids, Disney Family.com is my go-to resource each year for Disney-themed crafts. With two weeks left until Valentine's Day, it's time for us to get to work!

Disney Family.com takes the guesswork out of finding class valentines with your child's favorite Disney characters by offering printable valentines. Download and print cute valentine designs with Mickey and friends, the Muppets, Cars, Disney Princesses, Phineas and Ferb, and characters from "Tangled," "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Toy Story" here.

The site notes that its printable crafts are specially designed with muted colors to not waste too much of your printer's color ink.

Feeling a bit more creative? Try your hand at making adorable valentines, such as the Charm-ing Cars Valentines, Tinker Bell's Pop-Up Card, Belle's Valentine Bookmarks, Lumiere's Flickering Hearts Valentine or Sweet Skellington Valentines. Instructions for these designs and more can be found at Disney Family.com.

Those who enjoy decorating for the holiday will find details about how to make a Fairy Valentine Tree, Daisy's Daisies, Pooh and Friends Valentine Garland and Mickey & Minnie paper flowers. Plus, there are templates for candy boxes adorned with Stitch, Mickey and Minnie and a variety of suggestions for accessories to coral your child's valentines, such as Mickey's Valentine tote.

If you want to make more elaborate presents, consider a Mickey Mouse photo frame, Disney Valentine's Day stickers, and Mickey & Minnie cupcake doilies. Or, who could resist Piglet's Valentine Cupcakes, Minnie's Polka Dot Cookies or Honey Bee Mines?

Of course, if you're running short on time for baking, there are some Disney-themed treats at national retail stores. Target has quite a large display dedicated to its new line of Disney Valentine's Day sweets, including chocolate-covered pretzels, cherry juju hearts, boxes and mugs with candies and popcorn. There also are the popular stacks of treat boxes with each tier containing a different treat. For many of these products, the Disney-themed containers are reusable.

Toys 'R' Us has a Disney take on the traditional conversation candy hearts. And at Walgreens, customers can find an assortment of Valentine's Day merchandise featuring Mickey and Minnie, including novelty candy, figurines, plush animals and gift wrap.

Although a romantic trip to Walt Disney World might be a wonderful way to spend the holiday, clearly those who love Disney can share their passion without leaving their hometowns.
