Valentine Countdown {Download/Printable}

With Valentine's Day just around the corner what better way to teach your children (or remind yourself) about love? I've created this Valentine Countdown for my kiddos and thought I'd share with you!
 Lovely numbered envelopes perfect for stuffing
 perfect for counting down
 until one more day til Valentine's Day!
What's even more special is what's inside. Sure we've got treats and love notes, but every other day there is an activity or thing to do that deals with love or loving and a bible verse that pertains to it.

We hung ours on a line with clothes pins but you could just as easily put them in a bowl.

Today I've got the envelopes and 2 of the inner cards to get you started. I will have all the cards for you tomorrow! The envelopes will need to be printed and cut and glued. It's pretty basic but if you need help please ask. To get red and white like pictured above I had to print out 2 sets of envelopes, one set on red paper and one set on white.


Below are your starter activity cards these will cover 2 days. I will post all of the cards tomorrow for you. The one on the right is designed with a spot to attach a small candy (heart marks the spot). To print click on the image below to enlarge, click it again to enlarge even more then right click and save to your computer. Print it as a 4x6.


Special thank you to The Graphics Fairy for the frame images for the envelopes! Enjoy!

I love this. I wish we celebrated Valentine's more over here in Australia. Maybe I should do a bit more with my family. Thanks for the idea!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
