I loved making Valentine’s when I was a little girl. In fact, I loved making anything. However, I am the mother of two rowdy boys who aren’t really into “making things.” They needed to bring Valentine’s to school for each class though and I wanted to do homemade valentines with them
Enter the Super-Simple, Super-CUTE Valentine solution!
Eye (heart) U
I love you (even a kid can read this!)
It doesn’t get much easier than this. Googly-eye + paper heart + handwriting practice.
Yep. That’s about it.
And they turned out so adorably! I love them.
We made 40 valentines for about $3.50. Not bad! (if I do say so myself!)
We made the Valentines over 4 days. This four day process was a testament to how much my boys don’t like to do crafts (or practice their handwriting) and how little patience I have. In fact, the first day, it was a toss-up who screamed more: three-month old little brother (who was ignored during the crafting process) or me (“write your name!! Stop..will you just..! here…NO! Glue it…ahhh!!!!)
Just keepin’ it real, folks.
The next 3 days went much smoother. No one screamed.
In fact, we even had fun! 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day!
