I have three school-aged children, each with roughly 25 kids in their class. Add to that the 15 kids in my daughter’s preschool class, and that’s a lot of valentines to prepare.
Since I have so much extra time these days, I thought I’d personally crochet 90 little Valentine-themed afghans and bake 90 boxes of homemade, perfectly-iced cookies.
Oh, I hope you know how I jest.
This is an especially busy few weeks for our family, and I didn’t feel like over-seeing the signing of 90 store-bought cards. Instead, this year I created Valentines on the computer, and I printed them out on cardstock. The boys are cutting them out, taping a dollar-store pencil to the back of each one (12 pencils for $1! Score!), and we are DONE. And nobody had to mass-sign anything. They turned out really cute, too. The boys’ cards all look the same (except for the name, of course):
For some extra girly fun, I even tied a ribbon on Corrie’s:
(And no, I don’t normally organize my kids’ valentines two weeks early. I’ll be out of
town the country the hemisphere during the school valentine parties, and while my husband is a wonderful, hands-on father, he draws the line at valentines.)
