Valentine’s Day is almost here, and here I am not ready for another holiday AT ALL! Despite my feelings about it, Valentine’s day is upon us and it is time to prepare for it. I’ve found some pretty great ideas for handmade Valentine’s day cards to try out this year.


These seem like a great idea for kids to handout to their classmates or teammates. This is a great idea for nieces and nephews as well!

You will find everything you need to make these Valentines treats at GoTeamDuncan.com




This blogger created these amazing Minecraft Valentines  for their son and decided to share them with us! How cool are these? Right up my 9 year old’s alley!

These pencil holder Valentines are a great alternative to handing out candy to classmates at school this holiday. From the same blogger that shared the Minecraft Valentine cards!

Stitched Heart Bookmarks

These homemade Valentine’s day cards come with a hand stitched bookmark! Great for a child (or Parent) who has the skill and patience to make.

Color Theory Valentines

Do you have a budding artist on your hands? They are sure to love this Valentine’s day art project. She starts off by drawing a grid onto cardstock, her daughter then proceeds to fill in each square using shades of red! The paper was then cut into small Valentines day cards! I must say I am a huge fan of this project, and I am looking forward to exploring this blog a little more! Check it out: mer mag

“DINO” mite Valentines

WHOOPIE it’s Valentine’s Day

HAHAHA! What a cruel prank to pull on your child’s teacher, to send him to school bearing a classroom full of whoopie cushions! Too cute to pass (gas) on.

Kids are bombarded with expensive toys and gifts all year round. This Christmas try gifting one of these handmade gifts and you just may be shocked at the amount of appreciation you’ll receive!


A great way to get kids to appreciate a handmade gift is to stick with what they know. Of course YOU love the classics like Frosty, or Rudolph. Chances are that the little one you are making a gift for is a fan of something a little more recent, like a certain super famous snowman from a very popular Disney movie! Check out this Frozen Olaf quilt. If your sewing skills are up to it this is a great handmade gift for any child on your shopping list!

Of course if you don’t have time for pinpoint accuracy and would still like to gift a nice handmade Olaf blanket, try some of this beautiful Olaf fabric in a simple square sewing pattern.
