Today is Valentine’s Day, which means lots of chocolate, flowers, and cards. For little kids it means LOTS of heart shaped crafts and candy! When I was in elementary school I loved valentines day so much because we got to exchange valentines! We decorated paper bags or little boxes the days leading up to valentines day and then on the actual day we would put the valentines day cards that we made in each others boxes! It was very important that you made everyone in the class a valentines day card so that no one felt left out; I would spend entire day making cute cards off of the website with my mom and putting together adorable little candy packages. Of course not all of the candy went into the packages, a generous amount also made it into my dad’s stomach…and mine! Now that I’m a little bit older I don’t get to do that, but my dad is super nice and gets me a box of chocolates every year! There are plenty of cute valentine themed crafts and cards on the website for children to make in celebration of this lovely holiday (emphasis on the love)!
