17 Handmade Valentine Ideas for Kids (Homemade)

Looking for some cute last minute Valentine ideas that you can make at home? I took the easy way out and bought the girls' Valentines for school this year. Natalie chose Disney princesses and Michaela Byrd went with Lalaloopsy. If I had the idea for this post sooner, I may have gotten myself in gear and attempted making something. I love the cute factor of homemade Valentines, but they do take a bit of planning, don't they? Hope you like these Homemade Valentine Ideas I pulled from my Pinterest Boards.

Hey girl--after being out of town all last week, I've done a little bit of catching up today. I like this round-up of Valentine's ideas! In all our years of giving Valentine's cards, I think we may have made cards one time. Store-bought with a candy attached was always preferred by my boys and just fine with me! Sometimes it seems that moms are going for craftiest mom awards rather than what the kids will like, you know? But the homemade ones are really cute, I must say.

I really liked your kitchen post from last week. Good for you for posting "before" photos and for being honest about what you can and can't do! I'm looking forward to seeing the fruit of your labors. :)
