Homemade Valentine Projects

Do you ever feel like Valentine’s Day is a time where the parents have to flex their creative muscles? The pressure’s on to find a cute homemade valentine that my daughters can recreate 25 times over with inexpensive materials. Yes, we could always go buy the boxed valentines from the grocery store…but there’s something about those homemade ones. It wouldn’t be February 14 without some construction paper and glue!

Here are 5 ideas we’ve collected as inspiration for our valentines this year. Which one should we make?
