Valentine’s Day

February 11th, 2009 posted by Family Corner Staff

Valentine’s Day is almost here. I went through FC looking for some quick and easy crafts, last minute goodie ideas, and some helpful hints for those like me that procrastinate. 😉 So here they are for all my fellow procrastinators!CRAFTS Fun Valentine Printables – Here are some quick ideas to print off and use as gifts, games, and puzzles. Ideal for the classroom or homeschool setting, but not at all limited to it.

Charming Valentine Greeting Cards – This Valentine’s Day, surprise your friends, coworkers, family, and your significant other with the “look much harder than they are” homemade cards! These charming greetings are simple to make, supplies are minimal, and the designs are as flexible as your imagination will allow!

Creative Valentine Mailboxes – Every Valentine’s Day, in classrooms across the land, children collect happy little greeting cards with their favorite singer or cartoon character from their fellow classmates. But what are they collecting those cards in?

Well grab some construction paper or card stock, a photo and some glue and make this adorable little card. Give as a gift to Grandma, Aunt Lisa, their teacher, or yes, even Mom! Change the color of the card stock, and even the ribbon, to use this idea for other holidays, such as Mother’s Day, Christmas, and birthdays!
