I picked up a 36-pack of these squishy hearts on Amazon and it was SO cheap to buy more than enough for an entire classroom! You can also purchase a 24-pack from Oriental Trading if you don’t need quite as many hearts.

I printed out the valentine cards on to heavy cardstock and used a glue dot to adhere each squishy heart to the valentine card – easy peasy and super cute!

Not only are these stress ball squishy heart valentines adorable, they also have some pretty awesome health benefits!

Much like a fidget spinner, stress balls can help overactive children direct their energy in a more constructive manner than they might otherwise find. Once their hands are occupied, the child is able to focus more on what their parent or teacher is saying because they aren’t distracted by their need to fidget and move around.

Stress balls can also help to improve circulation. When you squeeze a stress ball, you are actually ‘pumping’ blood and oxygen around your body and to the necessary muscles thus improving circulation. Fun AND healthy – you can’t beat that!

  1. Thanks so much for creating and sharing such a cute printable!! We used these hearts for classroom Valetines when my oldest was in first grade. I made little square cut-outs that said “It’s Valentine’s Day Oh My Gosh! Here is something for you to SQUASH!” LOL So lame! It was the best I could come up with at the time… (did not think that far ahead when I ordered the hearts!). It’s Now it’s my youngest’s turn, and I’m so thankful for your MUCH cuter tags! Happy Valentine’s Day (a couple weeks early 😉

  2. I’m having a hard time getting the squishy heart to stick to the paper. Every time we pick them up they pop off. Did you use multiple to get it to stay? Thanks!

    1. Sorry to hear that, Andrea! I only used one sticky dot, which worked well for us, but you might also be able to adhere them with a tiny dot of low-temperature hot glue as well.

  3. Thanks for the idea Heidi. These squishy things are all the rage at my kids’ school, so I’m definitely doing this!
