Construction Themed Valentines (Free Printable!)

Want to send a uniqure valentine with your preschool boy this year? Check out these Construction Themed Valentines for preschool boys to give out. Complete with free “I Dig You” printable Valentines!

If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you’ll know that our preschool aged boy is BIG into construction themes.

His very favorite sensory bin is our Construction Themed Sensory Bin, where he can use tiny construction toys to move around rice, beans, or chickpeas.

So when Valentine’s Day rolled around, it was no surprise that he requested construction themed Valentines to hand out to his class!

Since he loved his little construction truck toys so much, I decided to create printable “I Dig You” construction themed valentines for him to give out, along with a tiny construction truck.

They were a HUGE hit- and, to my delight, super easy to pull off!

If you have a preschool boy, here’s how to make these printable construction themed Valentines.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Get Your Free “I Dig You” Printable Valentines

We’ve created this sweet little free printable to make your bag assembly easier!

Grab your printable “I Dig You” Label. They are designed to fit bags with an opening of 4 3/4 inches. You may be able to enlarge them or shrink them before printing as needed.

We’ve also included multiple labels per page, so that you can get the whole class done at once.

Filler for Your Construction Truck Valentines Bags

You can choose to include just the construction toy in your preschool Valentines, but we recommend adding a little filler for extra fun.

Our preferred choice? Valentine’s colored M&Ms. Kids can scoop the M&Ms with the truck before eating, so it offers a little play. (We recommend washing and drying the trucks first if you’re going with this option.

You can also add some sensory filler instead, if you’re going for a non-food construction Valentine. It can be tricky, as kids are getting candy, so you want to avoid anything that may look like candy (such as our rainbow dyed chickpeas).

Here are some other ideas for filler:

Assemble Your Construction Truck Valentines

Now’s the fun part- assembling your construction truck valentines!

We recommend getting your preschool boy in on the fun for this. Kids generally love these kinds of tasks!

First up, cut and fold your printable construction themed Valentine labels. You’ll want to fold them in half, covering both sides of the bag.

Write your child’s name on the back, or have them do it themselves. (It’s a great way to help your preschooler learn to write their name!)

Fold the bag over as needed. You’ll want about two inches of clear bag to accommodate the label, without covering up the truck.
