The time has come to start planning and making Valentines for the kids in my daughters’ classes. I have always felt that it is very important for my girls to make their own Valentines. After all, the day is all about sharing love and friendship…they should spend some time making something special. Handmade doesn’t have to mean super complicated. When they were younger a potato stamped card was easy to make and a sweet gift to give. Now that my girls are older the expectations are a little higher…what will they create this year?
We’ve gathered up some of our favourite Valentines for older kids to make and give to friends and classmates. Some of these ideas are simple and others will take some time to prepare. With over a week to go to the big day…it is time to get crafty! What will your tween make?
