Valentine’s Day Printable: “You’ve Been Heart Attacked” Activity

heart attacked printable

For 13 years now, I have Heart Attacked my husband every February 14th.  I have heart attacked his car, I have heart attacked his classroom (that was too much work) and I have heart attacked his classroom door (he’s a teacher). But I never thought of doing this to friends, neighbors, teachers until this year. Spreading good cheer this time of the year to others beyond your loved one is AWESOME!

Valentines Day Printables

I LOVE being the giver of this love and friendship treat! My kids just sneaked into the teacher’s lounge and “heart attacked” one of the teachers mailboxes, so fun! The kids can also heart attack each other bedroom doors or a friends bedroom door.

You've been heart attacked

Now you can also join in the fun with our free printable kit below! I know my husband won’t pass it on so he will just get the note that says You’ve Been Attacked! My boys plan on starting this movement at their school with one of their teachers and sending some in the mail to their grandmas (if I can get my act together)!

I've been heart attacked

Ways to use this:

  • Mail a large envelope full of hearts and treats!
  • Place it in your neighbors mailbox full of hearts and treats. Our school has teacher mailboxes so I placed one in there.
  • Cover your neighbor’s door with hearts and a basket of treats with this note.
  • Get permission from your school and do this to a teacher’s door.
  • If you’re in college do it to your friends inbox.
  • Take it to the workplace and start some good cheer their.

Heart Attack Kit: Includes instructions and note card.  Just add the hearts and treats! To print right-click on image and cut and paste into your document.

    I like that you give an option of just making it fun for them w/o the pressure to pass it on. I’ve always wanted to do this when I’ve seen similar ideas around Halloween or Easter, but didn’t want to make it where people feel guilty if they don’t keep it going. Of course it’s nice too to spread the love, but hopefully they’ll be inspired to do so themselves. Thanks for this!

    I love love love your heart attack printables. I was wondering if you could make me a version of the “I’ve been heart attacked” saying “you’ve been heart attacked”. I’m having our kids do some neighbors but I don’t want them to feel obligated to have to do it too. Sounds crazy but we live in a funny neighborhood. ;0) would you be able to do that.

  1. Valentines Family Fun: Love Notes | Inspired By Family Magazine - February 5, 2013

    [...] Until recently, I always looked at Valentine’s Day as an odd combination of a) a mushy holiday for dating couples; b) a chocolate and greeting card manufacturers’ conspiracy and; c) another opportunity for me to go overly crazy trying to get my kids to make my clever, crafty Valentine’s to give to their classmates.  It has never been my favorite time of year.  This year, however, I realized that Valentine’s Day can be a family celebration.  Our family can certainly use more encouragement to show our love for each other (as I hear the distant sound of two siblings arguing….).  So, I’m making an opportunity. The idea is simple.  For the first two weeks in February, have pens and paper available to write “I love you because…” notes to each other.  Provide jars or some other labeled container for each person in the family to hold the messages.  Take the first few days of the month to have everyone write some notes during dinner.  Remind your family that they can write a note any time of day.  Hopefully they will catch on and take time throughout the weeks to write down why they love each other.  On Valentine’s Day, take some time to sit down together and have everyone read the messages that they received from each other.  You might just be surprised at what your children appreciate about you or their siblings! Follow along to catch all of the great Valentine’s Day post via your favorite social network :Twitter,Pinterest or Facebook and our readers preferred way via email. For my message containers, I used the much-loved mason jars. Paint or decoupage plain wood heart shapes (available for a few cents at craft stores) and label each with the name of a family member.  Hot glue ribbon to the back of the hearts and the underside of the jar lids. Put the lid on, allowing the heart to dangle in the center of the jar.  Decorate your jar and lid in any other way you desire.  Use ribbon, fabric, buttons, pom poms, yarn or whatever you have around. Then leave the jars, along with some paper and pens, out for your family to use.  And finally, start writing some notes of your own to fill the jars!
