These cute and sparkly robot Valentines are perfect for any child, boy or girl! Use simple supplies such as construction paper, sequins, and glitter to create your own fun robot designs. Perfect for an easy Valentine’s Day craft to hand out to teachers, friends or family!
I was walking through Walmart’s clearance section one day when I saw this cute toddler plate. So adorable right? Well I don’t have toddlers at home anymore, but I knew those sweet little robots would come in handy one day, so I snapped a picture of the plate with my cell phone.
Then I needed a design for a Valentine card that kids would like. It can be hard sometimes to come up with designs for boys that girls will like too. Seems like the entire Valentine’s Day holiday is geared toward girls. Lot of hearts, lips, and mentions of love, enough to make little boys scrunch up their noses!
However, robots have boys written all over them! All I had to do was add a few girly features and colors to one of them, and bam! Robot Valentines fit for both boys and girls.

What you need to make Robot Valentines
How to make Robot Valentines
You’ll fold your cardstock into cards and cut your robot shapes from construction paper.
Use a glue stick to attach the pieces to the cards and use a marker to add the arms, antennas, etc.
Add embellishments… I made the teeth by drawing lines on paper then cutting the mouth shapes from them.
Make glitter hearts like so…
Use your finger to spread some white craft glue onto a piece of construction paper then cover with red glitter.
Knock off excess and cut two hearts from the glittered paper. Glue stick the hearts to the robots.
Finally, use white craft glue to attach the googly eyes.
And that’s it! Fun huh? If you’re still looking for more Valentine’s Day card ideas, check out our collection of 25+ Easy Homemade Valentine’s Day Cards!
