Happy Valentine's Day!
What are you doing to make today special for your loved ones? I feel like we kept it pretty simple this year, but sometimes simple is just perfect. Here's our lineup of this mornings' Valentine's Day love!
❤️ blew up heart-shaped balloons (from the Dollar tree) and tied a cluster of 5 to a popsicle stick, making each kid a heart-shaped balloon bouquet.
❤️ Wrote a "love note" to all my loves right on the loose balloons in Sharpie.
❤️ gave the kids some "coupons" for some things they like to do that I usually tell them no or tie a condition to (sleeping in my bed, sleeping in each other's rooms, having a random movie night). They thought these were the coolest and proceeded to start making their own with the scratch art pack I bought them (also from the Dollar Store). Dad may have gotten a few as well ;) ***use our FREE printable to print out your own love coupons****
❤️ pulled out the Valentine's Day plates and place mates that we only use once a year and made heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast. I love how much delight a little food coloring and a shaped pancake can bring!
That's it! Simple but sweet. For the kids' school Valentine's this year, my 9-year-old wanted to bring in candy and my 5-year-old son wanted to bring in Pirate's Booty. Look how cute these Valentine's Day tags turned out!
I know I'm often scrambling for a simple, last minute Valentine's Day idea that doesn't involve giving kids a sugar high, so I wanted to share these printable labels with you in case you'd like to give out some Pirate's Booty for Valentine's Day. I suggest using a card stock when printing these.
