Free Heart Template Printables to Share Kindness Today (2024)

Free heart template printables show love and kindness in a super-easy way!

For Valentine’s Day every year, we’ve made it a family tradition to put hearts on each other’s bedroom doors leading up to the 14th. Our heart-shaped cutouts say one thing we love about the other person.

Now, we like doing a door a day for 14 days, but if that’s too much to remember (sometimes it is for us!), you can make it a one-time family night activity.

Just give each person hearts to write on and let them stick one on everyone’s doors.

Tweak the activity to fit your family! In the beginning, I was the only one writing in the hearts – as a way to express love to my kids. It wasn’t until they were older that they started writing too, and it became a family thing.

What if you don’t know what to say?

When you write in a lot of hearts it can be difficult to come up with something creative each time. Consider these different aspects to guide you!

  • Physical appearance (I love your bright, unique eyes)
  • Personality traits (I love your strong spirit and bold take on life)
  • Helpfulness & kindness actions (I love that you helped your sister with dinner clean up)
  • Effort and grit (I love that you took the time to research your Science project so well when you couldn’t find the answers right away)
  • Something you enjoy doing with that person (I love when we play a game together)
  • Write a love quote (“In my life, you are the sun that never fades and the moon that never wanes. Shine on, my child.” – Unknown)
  • Just being the person – Sometimes, we need to let others know that we love them because of who they are, not what they do. (I am so blessed to have you and love that you are my daughter)

As you can see, they don’t have to be complicated. Not only do these printable heart shapes show love and appreciation, but the activity teaches the kids values that can be hard to grasp as a kid.
