First of all, are you familiar with fingerlights? Basically, they are a tiny colored light with an on/off switch and an elastic band so you can wear it on your finger. A couple of Octobers ago, a neighbor gave them out to trick-or-treaters and I made a mental note of their awesomeness. I know they are just tiny little lights, but I find them quite irresistible and thought they would make wonderful candy-free valentines!

Happily, fingerlights are easy to find. I ordered these on Amazon, and asked Amy Christie to put together a happy little printable to go with them.

All you need to do is order finger lights, print out the cards, and pop on a glue dot! Done and done. Let’s get to it!

Print the cards and cut them out. Then, use glue dots or double-sided tape to attach the finger lights to the cards. (A great job for the kids!)

And that’s it. You can have your kids sign the back if you like, and then they’re ready to pass out to classmates.

  1. Those lights carry 3 button batteries. I would suggest that anyone who has children, or even has children who come visit to consider the potentially life threatening dangers of button batteries. Please check out: http://www.emmettsfight.com for more info on the damage button batteries are doing to kids.

  2. This is a lovely post and I hate to put a damper on the fun mood, but I’m so glad that Rachel posted above about the danger of button batteries. I was just about to write and warn you of them myself.
