As crazy busy moms (or women), Valentine’s Day can be a bit daunting. Sure there are a ton of ideas out there, but most require a good bit of money or time …. both of which I’m extremely short on right now.
So when I came up with this simple idea, I knew I had to take time to share!
Quick & Easy Valentine
I wanted this to be a surprise from Naomi and I, so I decided to cut out hearts and put special sayings on each one. You could do this with just a simple note, or get more creative and artsy as you have time, energy or resources!
For us that meant I traced and cut out hearts, and Naomi (at 2) colored on them. I this short time to introduce her to several early craft skills (I am not a crafter, so we haven’t done many things with her yet). We then taped the hearts on the bottles.
For fun, I decided we should hide the bottles and make Daddy hunt for them. Naomi had a blast hiding them, and showing Daddy where they were too! She got bored quickly though, so he still had a couple to find on his own. It was a lot of fun for all of us.
I even saved a few (shh!), to make some from me on Valentine’s day since we did Naomi’s early.
So here’s my advice if you are looking for something quick and easy for your Valentine:
Keep it simple, keep it fun, and remember it doesn’t have to be perfect to bless your Valentine!
