Download this super adorable dinosaur Valentine coloring card for kids and use the print then cut feature on your Cricut machine to easily cut it out.
Every Valentine’s day I make my kids something that they can give out to their friends and classmates at school, instead of buying something that everyone can pick up at a store.
I love being able to make things that are fun and creative and my kids really enjoy that I do that for them.
This year I made this dinosaur Valentine coloring card along with a couple of other designs that I think are really cute and fun for a classroom gift exchange, school party or to give out to friends.
If you’re looking for non-candy Valentines for kids, this DIY crayon holder coloring card is a great option for younger kids.
My youngest is 7 years old and I made this design because he’s into dinosaurs right now. I think that other kids around his age might like this design too.
This Valentine’s day card is easy and quick to make with your Cricut machine using the SVG file that I created and am sharing with you for free (scroll down to grab it below!).
When you scroll down, you’ll find detailed step by step instructions for cutting this card with your Cricut.
The instructions are pretty easy to follow so if you’re new to Cricut and design space, you’ll still be able to use your Cricut for this simple project.
You can use the included PDF file (download below) to cut the cards out by hand (2 cards on each sheet) if you don’t have a Cricut.
If you’re handy with a cutting knife, you can use that to cut out the crayon holder area and use scissors to cut out the cards. Personally, I suck at cutting with a craft knife so I NEED my Cricut for cutting projects.

If you have a Silhouette cutting machine, you can use the SVG file but I don’t have instructions because I don’t own a Silhouette.
