Instead of buying valentines, we made our own during homeschool.
I got creative, using the stuff we already had. Some of the things we used were from Target, and the Dollar Store. We used stickers, construction paper, doilies, sharpies, foam paper, glitter hearts, glue, etc.
Make Valentines is fun, and a good way to pass the time. It has a little bit more meaning than buying valentines. Also, it is a great way to spend time with your family.
