Valentine's Day will be here before you know it and pretty soon your kids will be getting ready for their class Valentine's party. Each year stores are filled with boxes of Valentines with your kid's favorite character. Those cards can be expensive and impersonal. Before heading to the store for a quick pick-up of cards, consider using what you already have for Valentine's Day.
In addition to giving out cards, teachers usually request that each student has a box or bag to hold the Valentine's. Dig into your craft closet for this project too and enjoy an evening of crafting with your little one. We've got you covered with a collection of DIY card and cardholder ideas! Gather up all your boxes, bags, construction paper, stickers, and paint for a crafting session your kids will enjoy. Let them make each card special and their cardholder decorated with personality.
Rather than just having them sign their name to the same card over and over again, they are exploring their creativity and having fun! All while you enjoy an evening of entertained kids on a dime.
