My daughter is taking Valentine’s Day in the classroom seriously this year. Last year she had to make a cardbox-box mailbox for the Valentines she received from her friends. We glued some construction paper to it, decorated with some foam heart stickers, and she went on her merry way. When I visited her classroom for the card exchange, I was astounded by the Etsy-quality mailboxes the kids had. Clearly their moms had raided Hobby Lobby for every stitch of ribbon and spot of glitter because those mailboxes were magazine photo-shoot worthy. Ooops. This year my daughter is determined to have some cool Valentines to share, as well as a great box to collect hers. Since I”m not ambitious enough to do all the adorable ones I’ve seen on Pinterest, I’m thinking that we’ll order some of these great Tiny Prints cards. My son is getting the mustache cards (because we obviously like that theme). As for my daughter? This year, I’m letting her choose! I’m not bringing shame upon our family this year. If you are not familiar with Tiny Prints, these are seriously some of the cutest cards ever. And you can completely customize with your child’s pictures, your own text, and text and fonts that you choose.
Here are some of this year’s most popular cards.
What are you doing for classroom Valentines this year? Are you a DIY’er or a buyer? I’m interested to hear your thoughts!
