Instead of getting a break after Christmas, we are faced with the next big holiday……….
Usually you will see me strolling through the holiday aisles oohing and aahing at all the cute little Valentine trinkets. I always end up overspending on things that are going to be broken or lost within a week.
This year is going to be different.
Here are 5 ways to make Valentine’s memorable but very inexpensive.
1– Lisa over at Wine and Glue made these adorable bird feeders! They are so simple and you probably have most of the ingredients at home. This is a hands-on activity that can be fun and educational at the same time! Measuring, mixing, shaping, noting the texture, waiting patiently for them to firm up (huge lesson), tying a knot, and picking out a spot so the birds can enjoy them!
So many lessons in one!
3- Becky at Strumpet’s Crumpets made these adorable and so easy to make Valentine Heart Chains. Ours might not look so perfect because we’ll be cutting them by hand but that just adds to the originality right?? I cannot wait to decorate the house with these!
4- How cute are these! Crystal over at Little Bit Funky had these cute cardboard hearts. The first thing I noticed was the amazing colors! They are bright and vibrant and looked like something the girls would love to do-that I would love to do. Not to mention the cardboard is very durable and should last a long time!
5-I fell in love with this next activity. Lindsay came up with these cute Valentine conversation stones. This is not something for the kids but you need something for your spouse too, right? The playing, not the assembling. That would probably be all you.
All you need are these clear stones that you can find at the dollar tree, a printer, and glue and you create this wonderful personal Valentine’s experience for you and your spouse!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
