Below was our process for Valentine's last year.
I wanted to do something different for Valentine's Day celebrations at school. I can remember being a little girl and I loved making boxes to collect all those "love notes" from my classmates.
With my son participating in his first ever Valentine's Day Party and with my daughter's suggestions and preferences, these were the "love notes" that they passed out.
3} Pen, Scissors and cross stitch needle.
4} From Scrapbooking Supplies Acid-Free Paper I used a couple of the Printed Sheets from the Valentine Collection.
Sissy chose 2 patterns for the boys and 2 for the girls.
I made a heart pattern out of regular paper and traced the hearts onto the back side of the sheets of felt. The 2 sheets of black felt we handled differently. Mommy just cut heart shapes without the outline to work with.
Then we cut all the hearts out.
Then Mommy and Sis sewed 2 hearts together so that the hearts were colorful and the patterns covered both sides.
And we attached a little piece of Valentine's Day paper to write who the "love note" was from.
There were really fun to make. And Sis enjoyed helping...Mommy enjoyed the help!
Do you do something crafty for Valentine's Day treats for your children to pass out to their friends? I'd love to hear your ideas in the comments section.
