Are you ready for Valentine”s Day Friday? If not, it”s time to get out some red, pink, and white paper and scissors and make some hearts and paper chains! A few paper hearts will make any home look festive! When my children were younger, we decorated for and celebrated every holiday.

For Valentine”s Day, we decorated a table top wire “tree” with hearts and “love” ornaments in the middle of our our kitchen table. We made decorations for our glass doors, refrigerator, lights, fans, etc. We put paper hearts on the children”s bedroom doors.

We made Valentine”s for our family and friends. We casino online baked Valentine cookies, with the names of recipients in icing. That was always a favorite treat in our children”s classrooms! I almost forgot the candy conversation hearts! We always had candy hearts in the house!

And CHOCOLATE! I usually bought a small heart-shaped box of chocolates for each of the children and hoped my husband bought an even bigger box for me!

Here are some ideas to help stimulate your creativity from Coweta Fayette Families Valentine Pinterest Board and from my personal Valentine Pinterest Board.

Here is a recipe for Valentine sugar cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod.  Of course, you may use your own favorite sugar cookie recipe, or save time and mess by buying refrigerated sugar cookie dough to roll and cut your own heart shapes. Decorate with icing or sprinkles as desired.
