I dont think Valentines Day should be all about the love between a couple i think Valentines should be more about being happy and friendly and letting it be a day about showing others that we care for them and love them.
So here are some ideas to inspire you to show some love towards others and how much they mean to you, these are also child friendly so little ones can feel they are playing a part as well.
1. Reasons I Love Grandma cards.
This particular preschool Valentine craft would be great in a preschool classroom, as it could be easily made into a 5 Reasons I Love Mama card. Who wouldn’t love to receive one of those?!
See how this is made here.
2. Long Distance Hug
This year I wanted to send long distance family members a special Valentine from our girls, but I wasn’t sure what.
I measured the arm spans of both girls and cut ribbon the same length (C and I did some comparing with the 2 sizes and measured with the tape measure)
I helped the girls paint hand prints, I cut them out and glued onto the ends of the ribbon.
The grandparents, both near and far, enjoyed receiving their special hugs.

3. Frozen Olaf Valentines
Ever since we saw Disney’s Frozen on the day of a huge blizzard, my kids have been singing the songs 24/7 (and so have I)! It was such a magical movie. It’s no wonder my kids want to give Frozen Olaf Valentines!
Because the first version of this treat involves cutting marshmallows in half, I made a version that looks like Olaf, and a version that is a little more give-away friendly.
See the instructions to make him here.
4. Heart Shaped Rice Krispies
I love delighting my children with special seasonal treats. These Heart-shaped Rice Krispie Treat Pops took less than an hour to prepare. It’s a perfect and fun recipe for a busy mom like you! I had them wrapped and ready for school lunch boxes in fifteen minutes!

5. Handprint Monkeys
Today I got to spend the day with my favorite little cousins and we made some adorable handprint monkeys for a Valentine’s Day craft! They turned out really cute and the kids were super creative with the hearts.
