I was going to title this “Fun Valentines, Free Printables and More for the Grandkids” but stopped. I just sent out a boatload of Valentines to grandkids, friends, and neighbors. My senior mom has been sending Valentines and other holiday cards faithfully until just the past year or so (hence my boatload, as I step up to help her with that 🙂 ).
Greeting Card Joys
Fun Valentines and other cards are sweet joys for all ages. Whether you send them via email, snail mail, or even create them on the computer but then send them in the mail, they are fun to prepare and even more fun to receive.
Fun Valentines and More
Thanks to Tiny Prints, I have a special surprise for you! Free printables and adorable Valentine ideas galore!
They have a post with a ton of Valentine coloring pages. You can use them at home for the grandkids to decorate and hang up. Or wouldn’t they be a cute way to send a letter to an elderly relative or two. They can color one side and write a short note on the other. For that matter, you could print out two – one for them to decorate and one to include for the recipient to have fun coloring. Hmmmm, my college beloveds would love something like that, I bet! They’ve commented coloring pages can be a good stress relief after the finals are done! 🙂
Tiny Prints also has a fun post all about making Valentine boxes. But they don’t have to be JUST for Valentines. Wouldn’t this cute Monster Valentine box be fun to some of the grandkids toys, cars, dinosaurs, etc. in? So fun to use and from the looks of it, very easy to make too!
Be sure to take lots of photos – while you’re having fun creating, and once you’ve got the fun Valentines and the Valentine box done. And be sure to visit Tiny Prints’ post, Free Valentine’s Day Printables For Kids, where you can download cute props for fun photos along with pencil top Valentines, coloring pages, bookmarks and more.
However you decide to use these fun and FREE printables from TinyPrints.com, you and your grandkids are bound to have fun. Bet you and your senior parents might as well. 🙂 And many thanks to TinyPrints for graciously sharing these with us. A sweet delight indeed!
Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! And for those spring and autumn fans like me, take courage – SPRING IS COMING (as this coloring book reminded me) and so is the time change (on March 12). 🙂
