Valentine’s and Daily Love

This year we had some spare time on our hands, so we decided to go the homemade route for our Valentine’s. We looked online, and the girls choose to make their own version of “You color my heart”, from A Mom with a Lesson Plan. We are always well stocked with crayons, and the girls spent a Sunday afternoon drawing their hearts.

Lily added a lot of character to her hearts–each one was different. I love it!

It was my turn to host mommy preschool this week, so of course our lesson was on love and hearts. We counted hearts, lettered hearts, played with heart stickers, read lots of good books about hearts, and ate a chocolate heart. Zach’s valentine’s were a little simpler–he picked out this cute free monster printable.

Pinterest is sure useful, for a lot of things isn’t it? There were so many cute free printable valentine’s available that I decided to pick my five favorites and give one to my family members each morning the week leading up to Valentine’s Day. Listed below are the five I picked:

Blank love notes by eighteen25

Knock Knock jokes by Teach Mama

B is for Bird Valentines by Vicki Arnold

Be Mine freebie from the Rubber Punkin

10 free printables from The Things I Love

I also used “Valentine, you’re my main squeeze” from Funky Polkadot giraffe, to attach to a special squeeze applesauce snack for lunches.

Lots of fun ideas–hopefully they will help some of you for next year! Happy Valentine’s Day!
