This is my first year doing Valentine baskets for my kids and it certainly will not be my last! I had so much fun crafting, making treats and gathering fun little surprises. Here is a closer look at Lennon and Rowe’s (4 years old) baskets.
I purchased these pink baskets at Target. I made a cardboard yarn heart and letters and added a couple of yarn pompom a to personalize them. I tied the letters on through a hole in the baskets and used hot glue to secure the heart.
I designed these shirts and my mother made them using her Cricut. I love the message of the shirt, especially given the current state of my country. And I think they can be worn year-round!
We love books in our house so I had to include a Valentine-themed book!
Valentine Stuffed Animal
Target Dollar Spot for the win! I couldn’t pass up these cuties.
Homemade Heart Crayons
I made these adorable glitter heart crayons with old broken crayons! I have a blog post with all of the details here.
Another Target find! The girls are really into wearing my necklaces right now (which I am NOT really into because they tend to break or lose them) so I got them one of their own.
Target again! Why not get something that will drive mom nuts.
Heart Straw, Chapstick & Pen
I think I found all of these at Party City; but don’t quote me on it!
Blush Tutu Dress
Just another dress to add to their dress up collection! Amazon find.
These came in a 3-pack and were super cheap on Amazon!
Valentine Candy Poppers
I made these myself and filled with conversation hearts, Hershey kisses and Dove chocolate hearts. Here is a tutorial if you’d like to make them yourself! They’d make great class treats.
Another easy DIY I made with supplies I already had at home! I put each child’s initial on them for extra cuteness (and to prevent arguing over who’s is who’s).
I found these at Target as well. They are so cute and so unique! We have never used them before so I’m not exactly sure how it will go, but what could be bad about an explosion of fruit smelling hearts?!
I can’t think of anything much more delicious than brownies covered in chocolate and sprinkles. And they are darling. And yes, I made these too (toot toot).
