I love finding collections of Valentines for the kids to choose from to give to their classmates. This year I thought I'd double down and choose a theme they both love. You may remember the fun we had when I surprised them on May the Fourth (Be With You Day) - five years later these two are still really gung-ho for Star Wars.
I'm going let them each pick a set from the list below. Then print them onto cardstock (if I'm organized and buy some) or else just plain paper (because really - do kids care about paper quality?)
I don't mean to sound val-humbug (is that what it's called when you're grumpy about Valentines?). But, I've learned over the years to not pressure the kids to label each and every Valentine with their classmates' names. There're a couple reasons for this.
First, I've spent too many February the 13th's having a battle of wills with a child who doesn't want to write all those names out. It's a hassle I don't need in my castle.
Lastly, one year the teacher's helpful list of all the kids in the class - didn't include my son's name (by an honest mistake). And for that reason, my son didn't get the same boxful of valentines that the other kids got. He's a sturdy fella and didn't take it to heart. But, I'm less sturdy and felt terrible for him. Luckily, I knew on the 13th that this was going to happen and could prepare him. But mistakes like this can easily happen with class lists, so why risk it?
So, if you're similarly inclined, for Valentine's sake, keep it simple!
For example, we write: To: "my friend" From: "my name". We've been known to write the "my friend" part for them, just to get 'er done.
