Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday this year which means we will be keeping Valentine’s Day easy and simple. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year because it is a holiday of love. I love that we can celebrate love for our family, friends, and other people in our lives on Valentine’s Day.
This year I am making things simple with American Greetings cards at Walmart. They are a simple way to celebrate and let those I love know I’m thinking about them. When I found them at my local Walmart, I was impressed that there was a whole huge section of cards. There were cards for everyone. There were also different types of cards including cards that made noise and played music. Luckily we had a lot of people to give to this year so we were able to purchase a variety of cards.
When you purchase your American Greetings cards at Walmart, use the Ibotta offer which means when you buy one card, you will earn $1.00. Get the offer here! Get some ideas of products and creative ways to use them here.
My kids are who I wanted to focus on this year. And not only that, but I wanted to focus on giving to my kids so they could give to their friends. While this is not a normal present, the kids ended up really loving the idea!
#SendingMyLove #Sweepstakes Ends 2/13/18 – Official Rules:
What you’ll need
- Gift bags
- Paper (colored is always more fun)
- Origami instructions
I went to my local Walmart and found the American Greetings section. They have a variety of fun greeting cards, bags, tissue paper, stickers, bows, and even coupons, a new product! I found some that my kids would love and that they would love to give to their friends. I bought a lot of extra bags as well so there’d be enough bags for all of their friends.
Next I went to the internet and found some fun origami ideas. I’m not sure if it’s the kids’ ages or origami is coming back to style but the kids in their classes are obsessed with making origami in all of their free time at school. Based on that idea, I found some flower origami as well as some boxes, fortune teller, and dog that might appeal to most of their friends. I printed off the pages to be put into their bags. I also included some colored paper so they can make their origami.
For my children, I chose a larger bag that could fit the American Greetings cards at Walmart, the paper, the origami instructions for 10-15 friends (luckily paper doesn’t take up much room), smaller bags, and tissue paper. When the kids opened their gift bags, they found material for them to try the origami instructions as well as all of the supplies to make their own gifts for their friends.
They thought this was such a fun present. It was a present for them that also included all of the supplies to make presents for their friends. They love making gifts for their friends.
I loved that I could show my children how much I love them and could help them show their friends how much my children care about their friends.
