A Little Valentine’s Project

Bart and I thought it would be fun for our children to send their cousins and grandparents Valentines each year. Of course, right now “children” is more like “child” and that child doesn’t really have the fine motor skills to make anything resembling a Valentine.

So we took matters in to our own hands.

We had a good time putting them together and the mailing worked out that at least some family members got them ON Valentine’s Day. Win!

    Are those words mounted onto the back of the book Sarah, Plain, and Tall?

    So cute! That's what we did with Addie's Valentines too. And ours actually showed up on Valentines day for several of them but that's mostly because I waited so long to mail them. 🙂

    So cute! I love that you sent them in the mail…who doesn't love getting something fun in the mail. We did something similar last year. Sadly, I was not thinking far enough ahead this year.

    So do you get tired of hearing people say how adorable your daughter is? Goodness.

    I really really love Valentine's day! This year Raymond kind of, sort of (ok maybe not yet) got that there were valentines for him. Ok so maybe he only really understood that Grandma sent some candy and a toy. But I persisted in reading the cards nonetheless 🙂

    So cute! We love to send out Valentine cards to far away family too. I'm going to have to log this idea for next year. Adorable! Not to, you know, toot my own horn or anything, but you should check out our blog for the Valentine's we made this year. I'm pretty proud of them.
