Fold a note of valentines for your kids with these three origami valentines #valenines #valentinesday #origami #kidcraft

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. There is class party planning, making sure the kids get valentine’s to hand out, dealing with your 5th graders heartbreak that she doesn’t have a Valentine.  And so many other little struggles that come with the days of mom life.  It’s easy to forget that you can make Valentine’s a purposeful holiday celebration, but sharing what you truly care about with your kids.  Love.  Share love with your children through a special origami valentine note.

(All these notes use basic 8.5″ x 11″ paper.  If you would rather make something useful, you could make the heart corner bookmark)

I have a daughter that enjoys receiving notes from people.  She leaves notes for family members, she appreciates a kind note from anyone.  So this Valentine’s I wanted to leave her several notes.  I could heart attack her door, but in truth I have already done that.  So I came up with these note folds to leave her notes here and there leading up to Valentine’s Day.

I have put notes on pillows, notes on doors, notes in bags.  It’s such a small thing, but the small things truly mean so much.  And reminding her that I love her is a valuable thing.  Notes are the perfect way for me to make deposits into her emotional bank account (to use the words of Stephen Covey).  Because eventually there comes a time I have to make a withdrawal reinforcing rules or with tough love parenting.

I used three note styles, because they make the notes feel different when I leave them.  Also I wanted a note to be heart shaped for Valentine’s.  What do you do for your kids for Valentine’s?
