When cards are made personal and you put yourself into them they mean more to most people. Creativity can be cheaper than buying, especially with the price of cards these days.
So, get out your crayons, paper, scraps of ribbon, stickers and anything else you have that might go on a card. I have seen Jello used, elbow noodles, bottle caps, paper plates and doilies. Let the kids have fun! Do not make them do it perfect.
Why not make your special loved one a card too? Take the time now, think about it and then by Valentine’s day you will be prepared, have saved money and will not be out there spending like the rest of the world.
Some sites for Valentines ideas:
- Jello Valentines Card
- About Family Crafts has sites listed
- Family Fun has not only cards but other great things for the day
