Valentine Countdown {Download/Printable}

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

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 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 or where ever!

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 print out 2 sets of envelopes, one set on red paper and one set on white. These download in a zip file that you will have to extract after downloading.

The card on the right is designed with a spot to attach a small candy (heart marks the spot). Print it as a 4x6.

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