Valentine Fun

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I'd share a few of our ideas with you from the past.

(Great to emphasize love as an action for children.)

This year my daughter has chosen some cool bookmark Valentines to share with her class!   I just want to say now that I showed her lots of fun regular Valentine cards, too, but she chose the bookmarks.  Just as I did not force the Little House party on her, I did not make her choose a bookish Valentine.

Brother chose truck Valentines, I've been pinning a lot of ideas (including other bookmarks)!

I also have a heart shaped muffin (or whoopie pie) tin that works great for kid-sized treats!  We like ♥ muffins.

Interested in a fruit of the Spirit printable to remind yourself to LOVE?  It's free!  
A Note to Self:   Love is patient!!  Even when sleep-deprived and hungry!

Have a happy ♥ Day

  1. Oh, these are such nice ideas. You take the time to be a wonderful mom! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oh, Carolyn, that is quite the compliment! I have to say that we don't do it all at once! In fact, the owl craft was completed several years ago! I'm thinking it's time to give new inspiration to the 1 John verse though...even if the old crafts are still hanging in their rooms!

  3. The heart shaped apples are so cute! Never would have thought of that! :)

  4. These are great Annette! You should add them to the Sweetheart Blog Hop & Giveaway! You can submit up to three V-Day post in the hop linky, so feel free to add some of your other great posts if you want! I will be probably do the Owl Heart with my 3 year old, K. She loves animal related stuff and these are just too cute! I have some pink, white and red foam sheets and I think it would be just darling! :) Thanks for sharing, and if you want to add it into the V-Day hop you can do so at

    Thanks and have a great weekend!
