Easy Last-Minute Valentines

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  Last year, we made these fun recycled crayon valentines.  This year, we're coming down to the wire and I'm opting for a fast, easy solution.  Yes, I admit it.  I'm not crafty ALL THE TIME!  Sometimes, I just take the easy way out!  So, if you're looking for some super simple (and FAST) valentines, we've got you covered.

Here are the ones we're using this year.  You can find the printable from Kommunicated here.
We picked up some glow stick bracelets from Target for $1 and put these together pretty quickly.

 If glow sticks aren't your thing, check out this fun printable from Thirty Handmade Days.  These would be really cute with matchbox cars or car erasers.


I also love these little fish from Faboolous: By Juliann Law.  Now, she sells the bowls in her Etsy shop, but I'm rather frugal and would just make them myself with blue paper.  You could easily print out the saying.  Here's a simple fish bowl clipart that could be duplicated in Word or PowerPoint.


And, if you have a little more time, you could let the kids make these cute Pencil Luv Bugs that we did for The Studio.

I'd love to know what kind of valentines you're doing with your kids this year.  Do you make your own?  Or save yourself the time and buy them from the store?
