10 Valentine's Projects Your Kids Will Love

Photo: Cohdra

Love is in the air!  Can you feel it? Are you ready? I can’t wait! Allow me to get ultra cheesy for a minute.  I’ll stop when the sap literally starts dripping from my fingers. Tis the season, isn’t it?

So, I used to have a shirt. It was blue, cheap, from American Eagle and one of my favorites. Everywhere I went I got comments on it, “Hey, great shirt! Love the shirt! Cool shirt” etc…I called it my magic shirt. Great things happened every time I wore it.  Want to know why it was so cool?

It said, “Spread the Love.”

Ahhhhhh. My favorite phrase. Isn’t it great? Lovely? Doesn’t it get you all giddy inside? Okay, sap dripping now. Seriously, who doesn’t love a holiday that is tied around love? For some reason, Valentine’s Day is so much more exciting now with kids because there’s more bodies to love. No longer are we solely concerned with the fact that our husband or significant other didn’t live up to our expectations (you know, he forgot the flowers or the chocolates or that there even exists a Valentine’s Day) but we get to celebrate and spread the love with our little ones.

Here are 10 projects your kids will LOVE doing with you…
