Love is in the Air

It’s that time of year again! Full of chocolate, flowers, and love, Valentine’s Day has become a favorite holiday over the years. We’ve scoured the internet and compiled a few crafts and recipes for you to reference as you start thinking about how you’ll celebrate.


Are these not adorable? Cut-out or scan an image of your child and place on heavy card stock.  Use scrapbooking scissors to create a decorative edge and attach to jewelry bags full of candy!  You can write or stamp a Valentine’s message on the back of the label and they will make the perfect Valentine!

Who isn’t a sucker for the Handprint poem?  If one from your child doesn’t send you weeping, you have a will of steel.

This a classic Valentine’s creation and one of the simplest.  Either print the handprint poem onto the paper beforehand or add it later, get the paint of your choice, and have at it.

If you want to take it a little further, sprinkle some glitter over the handprints before it dries or attach a current picture of your child to help remember everything about them at this age.  They’re only young once, after all!

This is the most commonly used version of the poem, but there are countless others you can find with a simple trip to Google:

    Sometimes you get discouraged
    Because I am so small
    And always leave my fingerprints
    On furniture and walls
    But every day I’m growing –
    I’ll be grown some day
    And all those tiny handprints
    Will surely fade away

So here’s a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small
