We have another super fun Valentine idea for your kids! You only need 5 supplies (3-4 of which you probably already have in your home) and I’m even sharing a free printable for you, so it’s even less work! Hurray for convenience!

When I asked my 9-year-old what her friends liked, there was one thing that really stood out to me… lip balm! I immediately searched for lip balm in bulk and found a great option on Amazon.

This idea is so simple, you’ll wish you had done it sooner. I know I’m kicking myself for all of those wasted years of buying boxed Valentine cards with those cheap lollipops.

Without further ado, I’m excited to reveal our “You’re the Balm” Valentine’s idea!

Last week was bring your child to work day. I was skeptical at first because it seemed like an excuse to skip school and I couldn’t imagine that my kids would do anything but watch TV and ask me for food every ten minutes. But let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised! Iyla, my 9-year-old, is the only one who decided to stay home and work with me.

So after a few administrative tasks, which she rocked, by the way, I told her that she was going to design and put together her Valentine cards. She made a few sketches and I chose the one that I thought would be the easiest for us to make.

I designed the cards (with her help of course). It was her idea to use the hearts at the end of the fuse. She chose the wording too.

Once they were printed, she used our paper-cutter to cut them out and attached all of the lip balms to the card stock. I think we may have spent a total of 30 minutes on the entire project (not including the time it took to photograph).

Iyla even took some of the pictures! She did a tremendous job. And she’s going to be even more proud when she hands them out to her friends on Valentine’s Day and tells them that she made something that was totally Pinterest worthy!
