Valentine’s Day Lacing Cards
My daughter loves lacing, she’s so fascinated with string. I always ensure that I am closely supervising her play when she’s playing with string because you never know what other uses they will find for it.
Valentine’s day is a great time to show others how much you love them as if you need an excuse because it doesn’t just happen one day of the year. We don’t usually buy into the commercial aspect of Valentine’s day but we want our kids to know what it’s about and why others are celebrating it as well.
Since my children are homeschooled, they don’t get to experience Valentine’s card exchange so we just do it among our own family. It’s a super fun tradition for us and it doesn’t cost us anything except paper or recyclables.
