LOVELY AND FUN Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

Remember the fun of taking homemade Valentines (or the little store-bought ones that you punched out) to class and dropping them in the homemade Valentine’s mailbox, i.e. shoebox on everyone’s desk?

Remember cutting out pink, red and white paper hearts by folding the paper in half and carefully cutting the 1/2 heart shape?
