Six Last-Minute Valentine Card Ideas for Tots

I am getting so excited now that my little one is getting her own set of friends and favorite people.

It makes everything more fun, including one of my favorite holidays– Valentines Day.

So for Valentines, I’m totally crushing on the idea of making some things for her little (and big) friends (and at least one foe– my brother who she just can’t seem to warm up to).

But, as luck would have it, we’ve been dealing with ear infections, stomach flu, colds and bronchitis for the last month. I’m of course down to the wire now to get something ready for her first real Valentines Day party.

Last year about the best she could celebrate was by donning a little red and pink and heading to a playgroup where she stared at everyone safely from my lap.

Here are a few of my favorites floating around Pinterest. Most look right up my alley (cheap, simple and lacking candy… because no one [me] really needs it).

DIY Love Potion via 6th Street Design School. She used a bottle of punch from Target, but you could just as easily use a juice box or other drink (depending on the crowd). The free printable is available here.
