Will You Be My Valentine?

Valentine’s Day is rolling in!  I have some Valentine favorites from the past that I often use, like these Five Valentine Treats ,and the sweet math activityValentine Candy Heart Count , and I always bust out my post office dramatic play area to coincide with the season of love letters.  But I’m always looking for some new ideas, and so I thought I’d share some of the posts that got me excited lately!

Check out these great Valentine-inspired activities:

:::It’s no secret that I love the Frugal Family Fun Blog.  The title has so many of my favorite words!  There are loads of Valentine ideas there.  Just two great examples of the funness and the frugalness are the paint chip Valentines and thumb printed hearts.

:::If you’re looking for some new inspiration for a Valentine holder, check out these Valentine baskets from Nurture Store.  (And the lollypop flowers look plenty fun too!)

:::Life as Mom offers some free printable coupons that are darling, customizable, and did I mention free?  She even includes some ideas for ways you can use the coupons.  Talk about making your life easier!

:::MaryLea at Pink and Green Mama shows you how to make darling, easy Valentine hair clips, as well as resourceful stitched cards.

:::The Love Birds project from Moments of Mommyhood isn’t just a darling project, but also a great opportunity to talk about symmetry!  (And that “I love you” card up there in her header’s pretty clever too!)

:::Even a toddler could help decorate this fantastic heart sun catcher from Teach Mama.  I love its adaptability and open-endedness. (Could someone call Mr. Webster and check on that word?)

Have some fun with your Valentine!
