February is full of love and what better way to show you care than a homemade heart or two? Try out one of these Valentine's Day crafts with the kids and spread the love.
There may not be flowers blossoming in the backyard garden, but you can still make pressed flowers for a loved one. Instead of splurging on flowers at a flower shop, try stopping by a grocery store (Trader Joe's always has cheaper flowers) for petals for this craft.
Need a few valentine slogans for your "hand" made creations? Try these messages:
Outside: Gotta hand it to you, Valentine... Inside: You've got my heart!
Outside: You've won me over, Valentine... Inside: Hands down!
Outside: I have something to give you, Valentine... Inside: My heart belongs to you.
There are lots of way to express love this Valentine's Day-and not all of them involve a sugar rush. This year, work together to make heart-shaped treats for your backyard birdies. This "valentine" is a simply way to show our kids that we need to love all living things (and not all hearts are made of chocolate!).
