Valentine...You're the Bomb!
I don't particularly enjoy picking out valentine cards. Let's face it...they are a bit cheesy, and as the kids get a bit older, finding age appropriate ones get harder. Here is an easy no-fail valentine that both my second grader and fourth grader are diggin'. What's even better is they can help put them together and most items can be found at the dollar store (not the Dum-Dums, ewww food from the dollar store).
-pack of black napkins
-bag of red foil shred or any thin red ribbon
-bag of Dum-Dums
-gift tags (Hobby-Lobby)
Simply cut through all 4 layers of napkin into a circle. Place Dum-Dum in center, pull up all the edges of a single layer of napkin and tie off with the string from your tag. Make sure to have the kiddos write on the tags first. Then add the red ribbon in a knot. Wham Bam Ka-Boom! You're done. That's all! Happy Valentine's Day!
