Exchanging Valentine's Day Cards Is Fun!

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 115

My children recently celebrated Valentine's Day in their schools. My three year old and one year old both attend mom's day out programs at local churches. They had parties in their classrooms. It was my first year as a mother having to figure out what type of Valentine's Day cards to send with my children to school. I decided to let my oldest daughter pick out the Valentines Day cards for her and her brother to give to their classmates. She chose Disney princess themed cards. I would have purchased another box of generic cards, but each of my children only had 8 children in their classroom. I did not want to be wasteful, so I only purchased the box of Disney princess cards. I wound up having to put a disclaimer on my son's Valentine's cards stating that his sister picked them out.

When the kids came home from their schools with their bundles of cards from their classmates, I was amazed at the creativity that went into some of the Valentine's Day cards. One of the students sent adorable heart shaped helium balloons as one of her gifts. Another little student sent in photo cards of her and her brother. There were small little goodie bags stuffed with candy for the entire class. Some children even went the traditional route and made their custom made cards from hand. I definitely was amazed of the varying levels of creativity that the kids/parents went to with sending in Valentine's cards for their child's classmates.

Seeing all of the creative Valentine's cards that my children came home from school with this year, made me think that I needed to be more creative next year. I recently saw a very creative photo card that was a picture of a child holding her hand out in front of her. Then there was a real sucker placed through the photo card to make it look like the child in the picture was holding the sucker. I have also seen people take broken crayons and melt them into new little heart shaped molded crayons.

I know that there has to be great Valentine's Day card ideas that I have not seen yet. What type of creative Valentine's Day cards did you see your children bring home this year? Did you do anything really creative with the Valentine's Day cards that your children took to school?
