I was browsing Hobby Lobby's Valentine items the other day when I saw the cutest oversized felt envelopes. At $3.99 for 2, I couldn't pass them up and threw them in my cart, not totally sure what I was going to do with them. I forgot about them for a few days when I had the idea to use them as love note envelopes for my family during the month of February. These felt envelopes will be perfect for our family. I know my kids (mostly my daughter) is going to love getting little notes throughout the month sharing reasons why they are loved. And this isn't just for kids. I plan on sending some notes to my husband too. *wink*
I think it would be fun to let your kids rotate who the "delivery person" is each day. Maybe put each person's note on their pillow after dinner and read them before bedtime. Or you could buy an envelope for each child and place the notes in there each day as they are written. The whole idea is totally flexible and adaptable to your family.
And to make your life a little easier (and cuter), I've created a FREE love note printable for you! Sure, you could just use regular white paper but what's the fun in that? Print these out and set them in a little jar with a pen and let your family show their love for each other!
What Valentine traditions do you have?
