This year instead of buying valentine cards with little cartoon characters on them, we are going to make them.
We are going to make these butterfly ones for Jozie's class from FamilyFun where they have plenty of great ideas for kids of all ages.
There are also many different ideas and printable's that you could use.
These barrettes are cute and pretty simple to make for your girls to wear next week to get them in the Valentines spirit, even when school is not.
This site has a ton of cute crafts for Valentines day that are pretty inexpensive as well.
Finally one of my favorite sites abcteach.com has coloring pages and worksheets for kids of all ages, and you can print them for free, and you can even print your own little book for the younger kids to read to you.
