Well, another time is upon us that cards are appropriate.... Valentine's Day! Yeah, yeah, everyone just calls it a made up holiday, but come on who didn't love making and decorating boxes at school to collect cards in??? I LOVED Valentine's Day in elementary school and even when I was teaching kindergarten. Everyone gives something to everyone, yummy heart shaped cookies and red, white and pink cupcakes, candy and more sugar than kids could possibly need. What's not to love?!
Well, now the boxes are made at home since the shift in how kids are taught in classrooms and there's less time for letting kids be kids, but that's an entirely different post. ;) Even though the boxes are made at home, there are still cards given out. This is Andrew's last year in elementary school, thus his last classroom Valentine gathering. All too quickly, he will be wanting to get something for a real Valentine. *sigh*
Here's his box from last year:
He said he didn't want anything "girly" and "cute", so he made a lego brick. Perfect for him! We made Lego Valentine cards at home for him to pass out. This year, we've been looking at different ideas and Tiny Prints Valentine's cards for kids has a BUNCH of great choices!
But, even if you don't have to get a classroom full of cards, you can get individual Valentine Cards too!
Tiny Prints has Valentines Day Greeting Cards for everyone! Funny, sweet, mushy, sassy, even a little racy for your love!
George and I don't really "do" Valentine's, but we do cards and I am one of those who most of the time gives two cards---a funny and a sappy card. I liked this one since I'm of course a self-proclaimed nerd, but my husband certainly doesn't disagree. :)
Tiny Prints on Twitter and Facebook! They often have coupon codes, give away a free card, discounts and new items they post about! I recently started following them on Pinterest too because I love their products!
For us, Valentine's is a family holiday and I'm excited for Lily to get to experience it as she's getting older too! We always have a special breakfast with things like pink, heartshaped pancakes and pink milk and celebrate with a family supper too. Last year, we even had heartshaped burgers. We also helped Lily celebrate her 1st Valentine's Day by getting her ears pierced. ♥
