It's time to face the facts—Valentine season is upon us. If you've ever stood in the picked over Valentine aisle at 9 pm on February 13th quietly cursing Cupid, then we're here to help. We've got a printable Valentine you can make happen from the comfort of your own fuzzy slippers. With this you can look like a Pinterest mom while really being an Amazon Prime mom.
Let me start by saying I hate giving candy Valentines because there is SO MUCH sugar going around. I don't mind the kids getting some sugar, but I don't feel like I need to add more to the mix. But giving just a regular old Valentine seems boooooring. Trust me, no one is going to miss the candy hearts when this fidget spinner Valentine shows up in their shoe box on February 14th.
Here's the deal—I found some great fidget spinners here. As an added bonus, these fidget spinners come individually boxed. That means you could use washi tape (like this Valentine red tape) and put the Valentine on top for a quick and easy project. Your kids can probably even do it themselves. Or if you want to dress it up, you can do like I did and get cellophane bags (find them here) and baker's twine (I like this kind) and assemble them into cute little packages.
After you download the printable Valentine, you can print it out at home, or take it to get printed somewhere. It prints out six to a page. They're easy to trim down and then they're good to go. If you don't already have a paper trimmer, you may want to get one. I love this one from Fiskars. It's so inexpensive, and has saved my life and sanity on more than one occasion.
