Valentine’s Day is a day for showing and telling those you love just how much they mean to you.
When it comes to teaching my kids to do this each year, we show our love by making fun Valentine’s Day goodie bags for all their cousins and close friends. Inside we put lots of fun toys and activities for them, and of course, a Valentine’s Day card.
Some years our bags are simple and other years they’re more elaborate. Some years we purchase fun toys and activities and sometimes we use handmade things. But no matter what the Valentine’s Day goodie bags consist of, everyone who gets one feels special and loves them. And that, is the whole point.
This year we decide to make our Valentine’s Day cards that we were including in our Valentine’s Day goodie bags instead of buying them. Our cards are small and simple, and thanks to the herbs and essential oils we used, they smell wonderful!
Join me today as I share how we made this year’s Valentine’s Day cards, complete with a photo tutorial and a downloadable printable if you wanna use them yourself.
