Any holiday centered around love and hand-written notes is the kind I can really support; maybe that’s why I think Valentine’s Day is such fun! Plus, I genuinely enjoy helping the kids come up with unique ideas for valentines to pass around. It always ends up being a little bit of work, but the payoff is worth it, don’t you think?
I took some time to gather together a few of my favorite DIY Valentine ideas into the gallery below in case you’re in need of a little inspiration when it comes to your own valentine making! That magnifying class valentine above is a good place to start!
