This year, I cut out hearts with different words on them. While the kids are preoccupied, I will hide them around the house. After dinner, they will have to find all the hearts & de-code the message to find the where-abouts of their Valentine's gifts.
Here are the gifts they are getting for Valentine's Day this year:
I got all of Zeke's gifts at Dollar Tree... a word search, calculator, yo yo, sweethearts candy, Frog Lays Eggs experiment, & a Growing Pet Flamingo. (I'm not exactly sure what those last two items are, but I guess we'll find out!)
I got Elie a sun catcher (from Hobby Lobby), bubble bath (from Dollar Tree), sweetheart candy, nail polish, lip gloss, & girlie nails (from Family Dollar). The Girlie Nails are fake fingernails for little girls. I thought they were cute for playing dress up & maybe encouraging Elie to stop sucking her thumb!
I put their gifts in these heart-shaped baskets I got from Dollar Tree a few years ago.
So, how do you spend your Valentine's Day?
