I still remember Lucy’s very first valentine she ever received. It was from her cute little friend from next door. He and his mom had made the most beautiful valentines~ little bags with homemade play dough, a mini heart cookie cutter and recipe. They came over and delivered it in person. Lucy was thrilled and played with it for days! It was adorable!
All you need is homemade play dough (recipe below), some mini heart cookie cutters, little treat bags and paper to print out your message and recipe.
We’ve assembled it different ways in the past~ stapled the recipe at the top of the bag or tied it on with a ribbon. Both turned out cute. And it’s so nice to be able for your child to give their friends a valentine they made themselves!
