Valentine’s Day is still a few weeks away – but here are some cute ideas for valentines inspired by some of our favorite picture books.
Love Z by Jessie Sima is a wonderful new picture book about a robot named “Z” who does not understand love. He leaves home, searching for answers – only to find out love was waiting for him at home all along. “Tucked snugly in bed, Z felt warm. And cozy. And safe. It was a feeling the young robot had felt many times before…But now it had a name.”
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a classic. My mom read to me when I was a kid, and now I read it to my kids. Here’s a fun little Giving Tree themed valentine.
Here are some other ideas we have made in the past:
- Design Mom’s Lollipop Valentines (This one is so easy and cute – we have made it more than once!)
- Tic Tac Toe Valentines
- Gold Medal Valentines
