Valentine hack: Collective valentine-making, and a great photo card idea

Cardboard Heart Valentine

Adrienne of Baby Toolkit fame shares two great Valentine hacks:

1) My playgroup mommas are having a toddler-free pitch-in decorating party where we'll make Valentine's cards and decorate sweet treats for our families. [Always more fun with company, and with a collective pile of glittery, lacy decorations. -- Ed.]

2) Make a giant cardboard heart (think oil painting frame in size) and taking Valentine's photos of the kiddos looking through it.
