Our Valentine's Day

This year for Valentine's Day, both of my girls chose some free printable Valentines to make for their classes. Katrina made these bookmark valentines (with my help) which we found here. She also made handmade Valentines from construction paper with little drawings and notes for each classmate and teacher (I so wish I had taken a picture of them because they were so cute!)

Talia decided that she wanted to make bracelets for each of her classmates (Katrina & I ended up helping her out as we got closer to the day and the bracelet count wasn't high enough ;) We found these free printable valentines for her to use.

In the morning while we were getting ready for school I remembered that I had saved some Valentines that were leftover from another year, so I snuck away and put together a couple of little Valentines to put in the girls' lunches from me with a bit of candy :)

While the girls were at school, I made Rice Krispie Hershey Kisses.  I used a funnel (greased with butter) to shape them, wrapped them in tin foil, and made little tags from waxed paper with "I (heart) Talia" and "I (heart) Katrina" written on them.  That was their after school treat. :)

That's how we celebrated our Valentine's Day this year :)  I'm so happy to have these two little Valentines in my life! :)  (Ken & I are waiting until later to celebrate our Valentine's Day this year- we are both getting over sicknesses right now and he is busy finishing up his thesis.  Hopefully soon he can get it handed in officially and we can breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate! :)

How did you celebrate Valentine's Day this year?

  1. Our Valentine's day was pretty low key. It was too cold to want to leave the house to do anything, so we just baked up some cookies and watched some shows.

  2. Those bookmarks are too cute! I like the toad one the best :) Thank you for sharing.

  3. I love the bookmarks,nice to see the snacks are not those huge solid chocolate hearts...hope you had a fun day !!

  4. What a great Valentine's day you had! I love all of the printables! I'll have to keep the Rice Krispie Kisses in mind for next year!

  5. I love the bookmark idea! I like the idea of giving the kids at school something they'll actually keep and use (not just throw out after Valentine's Day). Thanks for sharing these great ideas.

  6. Love the bracelets! And that you added your own valentine gift to your girls lunches. It's such a simple thing to do, but never thought of doing something like that. We had a quiet-ish valentines of watching movies with lots of blowing up involved, while both of us get over colds, lol.

  7. Last year DD8 made her whole class rainbow looms. I wish I knew of these printables to pair with her creative idea. BTW your girls are so adorable!
