Modern Valentine Printable

By Emily. Hayes has just now hit the age where he doesn’t want to appear to “like” girls. He has lots of darling little girl-friends, but for sure lets me know that is where it ends. So, we had to make him a Valentine this year that keeps things nice and professional. No funny business.  He’s not one to lead any babes on, which I can respect. Anyway, the printable download is below if you dig it an need something easy for your own Valentine celebrations! SUCKERS // WASHI

We had a couple different readers write in asking for last minute Valentine’s Ideas! When you don’t have a printer and you don’t have time to swing to the nearest Print Shop, here is something you can make with household items (at least household items for us, you know, a kid’s craft blog, ha!) You’ll need red paper, tape or glue, and pipe cleaners! If you’ve bought pipe cleaners once, you will still have these for 20 years, so go digging through that craft box! They’re never-ending! Then just wrap the paper around the pipe cleaner and your favorite stacked … Read more

It was truly just an excuse to get all our fun Valentine’s Day decor out! Spread out a blanket, get your heart shaped sandwich cutter for lunch, and give our latest dessert concoction a try!All you need are a couple churros and your favorite ice cream! Simply wrap the churro around itself and tuck the corners in, sort of like a pretzel. Then sandwich the ice cream … Read more

Feed Me! Valentine’s Box

By Emily. Oh man, we’ve been laughing about this DIY since it was hatched. Hayes loves to be creative with me and plan out projects. We were talking about what kind of Valentine’s Box he’d want for his party at school and he worked this one out pretty much all on his own. It’s totally whacky maybe even a titch disturbing, but he and Cal are both so proud and can’t wait to show their friends, so really what more needs to be said? They can’t all be perfectly beautiful, sometimes they gotta be weird, too. So, with that, we … Read more
