The season of love deserves some LOVE crafts, right? How about some for the kids to melt your heart with?
Love has been on my mind a lot the last couple of weeks (more so than usual) since I’ve been sharing my love with the kids every day with our Valentine scavenger hunt. Sharing something I love about them each and every day.
The boys get so excited to not only find their heart, but to see what it is that I wrote that day. And they get a big smile. And I usually get a big hug.
Our hunt has been such a simple activity we’re doing and makes a huge impact! It makes me wonder what other ways, or things we can make, to show our love to each other more regularly.
How about some LOVE crafts for Valentine’s?
Or any time of year for that matter!
