Last year for Valentine's Day I wanted to do something special for my kids. I found this adorable idea from The Gala Gals where we got to celebrate all day long. What I loved about this idea was that it was REALLY cheap. I hardly had to buy anything and yet it turned out SO cute! My kids talked about it for weeks!
It started with the theme "Puppy Love". The night before Valentine's Day, after the kids were in bed, I decorated the kitchen table with a cheap red tablecloth, some heart confetti, and a picture I made that said "puppy Love'. I found these adorable dog food containers at the dollar store and knew they'd be perfect for the day's theme! My kids thought it was HILARIOUS that I made them eat out of dog bowls! I also printed out a simple picture with the theme and their names, then I laminated them so we could use them as place mats.
While at the dollar store, I found these Valentine stuffed dogs. I had to have them. I'll buy anything for a buck.
Then, while the kids were at school, I got started on some more Puppy themed fun. I made bags with their names on them and filled them with Puppy Chow.
We also made bone shaped garlic breadsticks:
