25+ DIY School (or friend) Valentine Ideas

Sometimes, once in a while, kind of often……….okay, MOST OF THE TIME, I procrastinate.  And most of the time, means, not EVERY time (there is some hope deep down inside…) but it’s a dirty rotten habit of mine that I’m truly working on.  Dentist appointments and play dates included! :)

 

Soooooo…..Valentine’s Day is coming up.  And for some reason, I have so much fun making Valentine’s with the kids.  Yeah, we have bought the character ones from the store….and those are totally fun and clever too.  But, there’s just something a little more fun and heart-warming about making your own.  Elli and Connor are both in school and I know they’d love to cut/paste/color their own.  It just draws out the excitement of it all.

 

Anyway, THIS YEAR, I’m going to start sooner.  Like, this weekend.  Or maybe early next week…..unless that falls through, then we can do them next weekend.  Or, well, there’s always the week after.  Ack!!  See?!!  It’s a dirty rotten habit, I tell ya!  I’m going to help them put some together before next week is over.  Period.

 

So, I have been browsing some super clever and adorable ideas from around the web.  Wanna see some of my favorites?  Maybe you want to get a good head start with me…….don’t fall into the procrastination trap.  It’s ugly! :)
