This year I wanted to start the Valentine cards tradition for Hagberg even though he is only 2 and a half. He decided he wanted to buy Valentines and so after looking at the selection of a common bullseye logo store, he chose Phineas and Ferb. It was a priceless moment watching him "write" on them and then put the eraser in each envelope for his cousins and then he needed to send some to his friends and proceeded to tell us who they were. We made up for the store bought Valentines by making some simple ones for Grandparents and his Aunts and Uncles. I really enjoyed both and hope that next year he will chose something we can make together, but if a store bought Valentines kit wins, at least we can do it together right?
What does your family do? Any fun traditions or crafts for tomorrow? I am excited for Ed to come out and see his card and instead of candy we bought mango slices and strawberries to sit next to his small toy fire truck. After seeing a real one up close last week on our street he can't stop talking about them!
We would love to see your Valentines day crafts and cards. Feel free to join and post them on our
Happy Valentines Day!
