Valentine's Day Ideas

I know Valentine's Day can be a bit overrated and cheesy sometimes...but you have to admit, when it comes to showing those you love how much you truly do, Valentine's Day is the PERFECT time to do it (and do it cutely too)! :-)
I love doing cute little things for my kids, their teachers, church lessons or visiting teachers, and of course my husband!!
Here is a sampling from years past...
*felt fortune cookies
*Framed quotes that say "The past is behind, learn from it.  The future is ahead, prepare for it.  The present is here, live it." by Thomas S. Monson
*lollipop valentine's 
*heart shaped pancakes
*personalized mailbox filled with goodies for teachers
*mailboxes for the kiddos

I love making cute unique Valentine's for my kids to hand out...one year I did the shovel idea with the saying "I dig you" attached.  

Of course you have all seen the heart shaped crayons.  That was a fun one to hand out.  I attached a note that said "You color my world"

I made the edible crayons one year from Gourmet Mom on the Go.  They were super easy to make and the kids LOVED them!

This diy Valentine is so personal, so easy and so fun to hand out for the kiddos!!  Snap a photo of them with their arm extended and pop a lollipop in once you have printed them off!

And these mailboxes were bought in the dollar section at Target years ago.  I put my kids names on using vinyl and they love to receive a small treat and gift each Valentine's.
