“We were MINT to be friends” printable cards for Valentine’s Day or any day. Attach a piece of mint candy for a treat!
“Mint To Be Friends” Valentine’s
How fun are these cute little cards? They’d be perfect to brighten someone’s day or to use as Valentine’s. Attach an Andes mint, peppermint patty, piece of gum, or these cute Tic Tacs! There are so many uses for these “We Were MINT To Be Friends” printable cards.
We have a Compli”MINT” activity coming up at church and I made these to use as invites (with the date and time on the back) for the girls in our youth group. I’ll share the details of that activity at the end of the post for those interested, but couldn’t help but think that these little cards would be great for so many different things with a variety of mint candies and treats.
I found these adorable MINI boxes of Tic Tacs on Amazon, and the girls in our church youth group freaked out when I pulled a bunch out of my purse to share with them a few weeks ago. Each little box has 6-8 pieces of candy inside. They are definitely a novelty and not something I’d purchase on a regular basis. A regular box of Tic Tacs is more cost-effective, but I’m a sucker for cute stuff.
The cards print 6 to a page. I used card stock so that they’d be nice and sturdy and attached the candy using double-sided tape.
Who will you share these with?

Young Women Compli”MINT” Activity Idea
Here is a Young Women activity that we did 3 years ago and are actually planning on doing again in March.
Use a safety pin to pin a piece of cardstock paper to the back of everyone’s shirt.
Hand everyone a pencil or marker and have them go around and write a compliment on everyone’s paper. Because the paper is attached to their back, they won’t know who wrote what and won’t have any idea what is written on their paper until the end of the activity.
Once everyone has had a chance to write on everyone’s paper, help the girls remove the safety pins and hand them their paper.
Give them a minute to read all of the nice things that their friends and leaders had to say about them. Ask them if anything stood out or surprised them.
Last time it was so touching to see their faces as they read the list of things their friends loved about them. One said she was surprised when she read, “You are the best sister.” Kind words are so powerful.
We served mint ice cream for dessert (these mint cookies would be delish too!). It was such an easy activity with little to no prep (just bring safety pins, thick paper, and something to write with). Simple is best!
