It’s almost Valentines Day and that means lots of red and pink and candy everywhere! My kids love Valentines Day because they get to pass out Valentines to their friends. Also, in the morning when they wake up, there is always a heart shaped box of chocolates and a stuffed animal waiting for them. I love to do fun activities and crafts with my kids, so I collected some great ideas from awesome bloggers to choose from. Let’s get started!
