DIY Valentines

Who says Valentine's Day has to be a Hallmark holiday? (or a Dora holiday or a Bob the Builder holiday)? This year, my plan is to bypass the pre-packaged Valentines-as-savy-marketing-tools and take a few minutes to make some cards with my kids. In case you are craft-challenged, here are some fun ideas to get the creative juices flowing...

Or you can do what generally happens at my house when I try to make my kids do a specific craft... just surrender the fantasy of anything turning out to look remotely like what it's supposed to and let the kids go crazy with heart stickers, glitter, and pink, purple and red markers.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I have trouble with letting go of my own Martha Stewart fantasies at time to truly enjoy doing crafts with Isaac. I figure at least I recognize this flaw and therefore might have come to terms with crafting without care in the next few years.

Way to go on making your own Valentines!
