I remember when I was a kid, my Mom had me cut hearts out of red construction paper and made me
painstakingly write a note to each of my classmates. I remember Mom folding the paper in half, perfectly matching up the sides and drawing half a heart. She then made me cut along the half heart design she drew and that was the template for all the cards.
Yes. I had to do all that AND write all the notes and sign them.
I applaud my Mom on her passion for doing things right and being precise. Her attention to detail is one of her gifts.
I also know Little One has a very short attention span and often gets discouraged if I make tasks TOO challenging for her. She loves a good challenge, but at the same time, she also doesn’t like to do things that take too long. She’s only five, and writing a dozen cards is a lot for her.
This year, we’re giving her classmates some special treats that come from the heart, along with a Lunchbox Love note each.
Little One was extremely proud of herself for writing all her cards for her classmates! It was her idea on the weekend to get them all done. Lately, she’s been really interested in reading and writing, and she wanted to get all the cards done and out of the way. A little bit of a keener, if you ask me!
How cool are these “Did You Know” facts on the back of each Lunchbox Love note?
If Little One’s friends and classmates love reading and love cool trivia as much as Little One does, they are going to enjoy these Lunchbox Love Valentine’s cards!
Here are some Valentine ideas
