  1. What a great selection of activities – today we’re making Stained glass cookies I found them in my cookie book and thought they would be great I hadn’t realised that Outlaw Mom had done them before will be able to link through to her as the recipe looks slightly different.

    Thank you for including ours as well

    • Those stained glass cookies look amazing! Mmm. I can’t wait to try them myself.

    • I just love this holiday, Jessica. It’s way too much fun. Thanks for the nice comment 🙂

    • But of course, Jill! Thanks for writing such great stuff.

  2. What a great collection of ideas. I need to make some Valentine playdough. The last batch we made was gingerbread for the holidays. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • We are in the same exact boat. Our playdough smells like pumpkin pie, so ours might predate your batch 🙂

  3. What a fun list of Valentine ideas!! Thank you for incuding my ‘Magazine Tree of Hearts’

  4. Thank you! I scroll right down to treats first then slowly up with all the fun ideas. Going to try the stained glass cookies tomorrow. Much thanks!

    • Ha! Sheau — next time I’ll remember to move the treats to the top! Very funny.

    • Hi Annette! You’re so welcome, and thank you for the nice comment. Happy Valentine’s Day.

    • Kelly — they’re way too cute. I’m a huge fan of working with natural materials and doing good for the environment, and I just love these.

    • Hi Jennifer! Thanks for sharing your Valentine card post — how inspiring. I love how you made it so easy for your daughter to make so many all at once…without losing steam. Brilliant. And the washing station is a lovely, and smart, touch. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  5. I really like those treats, those would make great activities for children during Valentine’s Day

  6. whoa! What a list and great selection of unique activities. Am going to bookmark this.
    Thank you for including our Art Journaling 🙂
    Happy Valentines Day, in advance 🙂

  7. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different
