Some of the best gifts are the ones that are made with love by hand! As Valentine’s Day parties draw near, you might find yourself needing to come up with small favors for your child’s classroom or teachers. While it might seem easy to run out and buy a box of paper valentines, think about how much fun your children will have if they get to create the valentines themselves! For about the same cost of a few boxes of paper valentines, you can whip up your own Valentine’s Day pencil toppers for friends and teachers. The best part? This sort of valentine can be used long after the holiday is over!
