Well, this year I decided that two can play at this game. I’m guessing that kids aren’t the only ones who love to receive clever Valentines in the mail. I’m pretty sure that Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles and Dollar Store Divas would get a kick out of finding unique treasures in their mailbox on Valentine’s Day as well.

The boys also had fun taking markers and adding their own little Valentine messages all over the Puzzle Map.
I’m going to slap a couple addresses on these and head to the post office to send them off to my Valentines far away.
Easy. Fun. That’s how we roll around here.
