Treasured Valentine

 

I’ll see those fancy valentines

For sale in every store;

Yet there’s a very special kind

I always treasure more.

 

The printed ones are nice, of course,

With verse and lace and such;

But somehow they just seem to lack

That warm and loving touch.

 

The valentine I treasure most

Is given with a kiss

And fashioned by dear little hands

To fill my heart with bliss.

 

It’s given with a joyful hug;

And though I shed a tear,

It fills my heart with happiness

The same way every year.

 

Too soon those busy little hands

Will buy one at the store;

And yet my heart will treasure most

The valentines of yore.

I found some great links for valentines that you can help your child make (or if they are older, you can give them the instructions and let them go).

Have fun with these links and with making some treasured valentines!

The pic above is from Family Fun magazine (such a sweet pic!), but none of the valentine card links were working on their site (*frowning face*).
