10 Homemade Valentines to Make with Kids

art-robert-indiana Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you are like me, you will wait until the last minute, then rush to the store to buy a package of those little rectangular valentines for your child and let them add a few sweetheart candies, lick the envelope and you’re done. But, if you have a little more time, and maybe even have some time this weekend, here is an online round-up of some cute homemade valentines that are relatively fast and easy for kids to make.5403849526_a3a98563c2
