Valentine's Fun

I love Valentine's Day! I don't know if it's the pink and the hearts or the excuse to treat those I love extra special . . . whatever the case may be, it's just so much fun. That's why this year I decided that I want to do something fun every day until Valentine's Day. Knowing me, I would start off with good intentions and then fall short. That's why I made this cute little jar.

Inside are 16 little papers with a Valentine-y thing to do written on them (we started on Saturday). Here are some ideas I found and some that I just made up:

*Make Valentine sugar cookies

*Watch a good movie about love

*Read a love/Valentine's story

*Write a Valentine/love poem

*Make a present for someone you love

*Think about ways you can show more love to those around you

*Go on a heart scavenger hunt

*Start a new Valentine's Day tradition

*Play a game with someone you love

*Plan a fun outing to do with someone you love

*Tell someone you love them

*Make a Valentine's craft

*Make and send Valentine's cards

*Give 5 compliments to someone

*Do a secret service for someone you love

*Make some Valentine's treats for your friends or neighbors

*Make a heart shaped pizza for dinner

*Make a list of things you love about someone and give it to them

*Give someone a {paper} heart attack

*Write love notes to your family

*Make a family puzzle

*Go on a "Big Kiss" treasure hunt

Here is another "countdown" idea . . . I took a lot of my ideas from her!


  1. How fun. These are great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the idea of you and your men-folk having a month of pink and red. Delightful!

  3. I am so glad you made an advent calendar! fun isn't it!?

  4. I wanted to say Hi because my name is also Jeannine! Not a common name. :)

    What a fun way to count down the days!


  5. I love your idea. Your jar looks so cute with the colorful paper.


  6. Love this! I hope you will link up this project to my I Heart Projects Party!
