Valentines Ideas For Kids ~ Easy idea to make the whole month special

Make the whole month of February fun for your family by doing a “heart attack” on their bedroom door. Each day you write a little note telling them something you love about them, or why they are special.  You can write them all yourself, or make it a family event  and have everyone write a heart each day.  I thought this might me a fun idea to start at FHE (family home evening) tonight. Each Monday we try and have a few hours of family time,  I thought we could have the kids cut out hearts and decorate them… then I can write them each a special note on them each night. So simple and easy, but so important to help build their self esteem and let them know how loved they are.

Valentines day Craft ideas, no sew Bow tie shirt for kids, fast and easy low cost and super cute!

No Sew Bow-tie Valentine’s Shirt

This could be made for a boy or a girl, but this cute little number is for my handsome kindergartner.  This shirt is a simple project and can be made by almost any skill level. My little guy is going to love this “fancy tee”, watch out girls he is dressed to impress.

Supplies:

  • T shirt
  • Polka dot fabric – fat quarter cut is more than enough.
  • Red fabric – I just used some scraps that I had
  • No sew adhesive – found in fabric departments, I’ve even seen it in Walmart
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Iron
  • Scissors
 Valentines day Craft ideas, no sew Bow tie shirt for kids, fast and easy low cost and super cute!
Directions:
  1. Start by getting your bow-tie shape. Since I’m one for symmetry I simply did this by folding my piece of paper in half and drawing half of a bow-tie then cutting it out. It took a few tries to get the size and shape I wanted.
  2. Once you have your bow-tie, do the same thing for your heart shape.
  3. Following the instructions from your no sew adhesive, adhere your fabric to the adhesive using your iron -medium heat and no steam
  4. Do this for the polka dot fabric and the red fabric
  5. Using your bow-tie template trace onto the polka dot fabric and cut out
  6. Cut out a small strip to wrap around the center of the bow-tie as well
  7. Do the same for the heart template and the red fabric.
  8. Peel off your adhesive’s paper backing for the bow-tie and the strip.
  9. Wrap the strip around the center of the bow tie, making sure that the ends are on the back side. Place it on your T shirt where you want it to lay and use your iron to adhere it to the shirt.
  10. (Again, follow the instructions from your adhesive for temperature and time)
  11. Once the bow-tie is secure,  place the heart where you want it to lay and iron on.
  12. Finished!

Fourteen years ago at around this time of year I was busy trying to find a someone. Getting the guts up to ask a curly brunette out on a date was an incredibly tough thing. What made it hard was after you said no. Yup turn downed. I went along with your excuse and gave you the benefit of a doubt. So I fought back the first rejection to once again ask you out again. Only to be rejected again. By this time I became more frustrated then totally and ultimately rejected. Although it was far worse the second time. Luckily for me I had a recent self realization to enable a baseball mentality to dating. Before I even asked you to go out on a date I started the “three strikes your out” program. I would give girls three chances before they were knocked off my list. You were on strike two. So there we were, two strikes and we still had to see each other every day at the same dealership that we worked at together. So not long after the second strike I caught you walking up to the front office and caught you and asked again. Sure everyone by now is thinking oh just give the guy a mercy date. But what did you say – NO! I instantly reacted and told you you just got your third strike. After your confusing look I explained my Three Strike Your Out Program, and you then quickly said “Well Maybe.” Maybe go out with me after three strikes? So I told you that I would give you 2 3/4 strikes and we planned a date on another day then the one I just asked.
You were confused as to why I kept asking, thinking I wasn’t interested in the cute country farm girl. So the date was to a collage theater play where we went to and we both realized there that it was love on Third Strike. Later learning from you that you knew that night that you felt the same as I did that night. All to only see us engaged three months later and married in August of that year. Fast forward over 14 years, you are still the one I would ask out again and again. After all the things we have been through both rough and fun, we still snuggle up at night. Even if we are fighting off 5 kids. 😉

Prior to that first date together I had hoped to find you for a thousand years. So as we continue to grow and evolve together, just like our first date, where we know we will be together for a thousand years more.
I Love You more then that first day!

“A Thousand Years”

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.One step closer[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
