Classroom Valentines

Every year at the preschool my older son used to attend and my younger son now attends, they do a Valentine’s Day card swap. The kids make their own Valentine’s Day mailbox out of a Kleenex box and they love it!

The Valentine’s Day cards don’t have to be handmade, but they usually are. And they don’t have to be photo cards, but we enjoy creating them together.

Photo cards are a great way to get kids involved in Valentine’s Day, to give them a project they can be proud of, and to create something special that their friends will treasure.

I try to come up with a simple concept that the kids can easily help with and the making of the cards is a great photo op!

It is simple and easy to send grandparents a framed photo for Valentine's Day, especially if you order through Mpix.
