Brooks’ Homemade Valentines

I feel like a broken record, but THREE is SUCH a FUN AGE! Brooks has always been an awesome tiny human, but I feel like he’s recently been blossoming into this amazing little kid. He asks questions CONSTANTLY, he always is learning, always inquisitive, always excited about anything and everything.

I can also see him using his imagination more and more – to play and have fun. It’s really sweet to watch and even sweeter when his little bro joins in on the fun. Brooks also loves to create, which I’m a big fan of. He’s been loving various arts + crafts projects I’ve been setting out for him too. We’ve been having a blast with paint and ever since our trip to the Crayola Experience, he’s been loving coloring too.

I got an email last week letting me know that Brooks’ preschool would be having a little Valentine’s Day party and that all the kids should bring in Valentine’s to hand out.


I’m so excited because it’s going to be the cutest thing! Naturally, I thought this was the perfect excuse to do a little crafting project and have Brooks make some cute Valentine’s for all his little friends.

Why not take the time to spend an afternoon doing something fun and creative with your little, right? We both enjoyed working together on this – check it out:

We started off with pink, red + white paper, which I cut into squares using these really cool decorative edge scissors.

Brooks and I then put his wooden stamp set to good use, putting his name on the back of the cards – it was a fun to practice spelling his name together – he always says B R O O O K S – adding an extra O in there. Ha. Working on getting it down to two.

Then it was time to put these cute little mini photo punchers to work! Brooks really liked lining up the paper in random spots and pushing down on the punch together. It gives a cute little extra flare to his valentine’s for sure!

Then Brooks got really focused and did some creating! He put stickers all over the front and used his new vibrant gel pen set to draw in neon, glitter and metallic tones.

I love how the cards look exactly like a three year old made them! Ha! They turned out really sweet and Brooks had so much fun making them for each of his classmates. It was a fun little afternoon crafting together and I’m hoping we can continue this, can I call it a tradition if we’ve only done it once?, for years to come!

Can’t wait for Brooks to hand them out next week!
Do you do anything fun with your Littles for Valentines Day?
Would love to hear about it!
