Here is a “combo” Valentines pin idea from Pinterest that we L-O-V-E! I started this easy-peasy idea just two nights ago and everyone LOVED it so much, I thought I would share!
Here’s what you need (you have it all I’m sure!)
1. White Crayon
2. Cardstock or plain white paper (although I think the wax crayon sticks better to cardstock)
3. Markers for the kiddos! (Lighter colors are best!)
1.You can create these whenever it works, but we prefer to do it after our loves are in bed. Create your secret Valentine’s hearts and messages using the white crayon. We’re focusing on all of the reasons why we love each of our kids. The image below is the first one we wrote for our daughter which said : “We love how much you always make certain that everyone is happy”.
2. Hang them up on your little loves doors in the morning for them to take down and decode. I decided to get creative and complete one for my husband along with kids hearts everyday as well.
**Side note there** I MUST admit, it really helps me to focus on those little reasons why I love my hubby so much. Let’s face it, in a busy day, it’s sometimes hard to think about how you love it when your partner simply looks at you and smiles.
This adorable Valentines activity turned into a discussion about how wax is resistant to the water color in markers. Such a great time!
Our daughter loved this Valentines activity so much that she made one for my husband and I. It reads: Mommy and Daddy, let’s make a craft together”.
We were going to do this Valentines Craft activity as a countdown to Valentine’s Day but our kiddos love it so much…they have requested to keep it going through the whole month! Yay!
