Who wants to hear about some fun Valentine's Day ideas for kids?! I knew you would... Now I love any and all holidays, but Valentine's Day is one of my very favorites. It's probably because my mom always made such a big deal out of it when we were growing up. Not only did she always give my sister and myself special surprises on Heart Day, but she always made it a point to have fun Valentine's Day crafts and treats on hand leading up to the big day too. Now that I'm a mama, I love doing all of that for my own kids as well. And I bet I'm not alone. So, on that note, here are some of my favorite fun Valentine's Day ideas for kids!
