Valentines

by Dinah Wulf

I know I have a while until my little one starts going to school, but I can’t help but be excited to participate in all the fun classroom activities. I recall that Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays in grade school. That week, we would make “mailboxes” out of old shoe boxes to prepare for all the Valentine’s Day goodies coming our way. Even though I knew that every kid gave Valentines to everyone in the class.  I still got excited to receive one from the boy I thought was cute that week.

So, for now I’ll live vicariously through these other Mommies and share some cute valentines I found from other blogs.  All of these are super cute, creative, and inexpensive.  You can get some inspiration from the plastic toy bins or the candy aisle at your local party store.  Add a catchy phrase and voila! Instant valentine!

Here are my favorites. Just click on the links for the tutorials from these inspiring sites!
