Sending Love … 12 Valentine’s Day Cards to Make With Grandchildren!

Making Valentine's Day cards

Love is the closest thing to magic!

I am a firm believer that life is too short not to celebrate every chance you get, so of course I love celebrating all holidays … especially Valentine’s Day. I figure a holiday that focuses on love and friendship (and chocolate) is a great thing to share with grandkids.

I have very fond memories as a child of my class at school making Valentines mailboxes out of a cereal boxes, and then walking around the class and delivering the Valentines I had carefully addressed to each classmate. How exciting it was to sit down and open all the Valentines that were placed in my Valentine’s box… it made me feel very loved!

I think is is always more rewarding for a child to MAKE their own Valentine’s Day cards, than to buy them (though we have all been in a time pinch and just bought cute ones from the store). Here are 12 of my favorite valentines to make with grandchildren (or if you live long distances away, maybe send the idea to them and tell them to send you one, too, when they are completed!).
