If you are like me, you scramble the night before the kid’s school parties and eventually just pick out some over priced box of Valentines from Walgreens on the way to school that morning and frantically forge your kid’s names on them. No?! Just me? Well this year I resolved to go back to my crafty roots and hand make all eleventy billion Valentines for all three boys. Um, then I realized I will be out of town on a business trip most of the week. So, back to the last minute ideas for me.
Here are 5 great DIY Valentines that won’t take days to make. Bonus, I showed them to my nine year-old and he loved all of them! Now the hardest part is choosing which ones to make.
