Mama-Toddler Fun with Homemade Valentines!

I had so much fun making Valentines last year with my then 2 year-old daughter – I’m excited to pull out the supplies this weekend and do it again.  Sadie, now in her full-on”I-can-do-it, I-can-do-it, I-can-do-it, mama I-can-do-it” three-ness, will be fun to witness run wild with her artistic expression.  My prediction — A LOT of uniquely shaped pieces of paper from her “cutting work” as she likes to call it.  God Bless Montessori. Work is play; play is work.

A box of recycled paper cards and envelopes, valentine/wedding pattern scrap book pages and several packages of heart-shaped stickers from Home Depot — I think we spent $20 or $25 on our supplies and have plenty left to use again this year.

I let Sadie be in charge of taping wallet-sized photos of herself and her little sis to the inside of the cards.  I’m not sure we’ll go to this effort this year — but it was a cute, inexpensive addition.

What do you like to do with your children for Valentine’s Day?
