heart crafts for kidsUp until this point, my kids have never used store-bought valentines… we make our own every year. Now just to clarify, we’re the cut-your-own-paper-heart kind of family and nowhere near the craftiness of the valentine’s in this collection but I still think there’s something special about our homemade batch. This could be the year the boys finally push back and insist on pre-printed Sponge Bob notes… but if they don’t, I’m going to use the crafts below to inspire us!
