What’s a mama to do while sitting in the hospital, waiting to see if her 33 week old baby will listen to her and stay in her belly, while having annoying contractions that keep her from sleeping? Stockpile a bunch of posts, just in case things get hectic and she won’t be here for a bit. So if these seem a bit incongruous to my current situation, it’s because I am writing to pass the time and not spend hours googling premature babies and their myriad potential health problems. Only positive energy around here!
Today I am sharing all the ways we have shown our love of Valentine’s Day here at Rub Some Dirt On It in years past. I hope you find a decoration, activity, or valentine to show those in your life how much they mean to you. There will certainly be more to come!

This year we made Beaded Pipe Cleaner Hearts to spruce up our winter windows. They cheer me up every morning, and the kids loved creating them. Good for fine motor skills, too!
Last year we started the tradition of hanging a Curtain Of Love outside our kids’ doorways with little love notes to let them know individual reasons why we love them and think they are amazing. Keep the notes every year and then share them with them when they’ve grown! Can’t wait to do it again this year!
Having a Valentine’s Day party, or just want a place to store all that Valentine swag? Here’s just the thing: Paper Plate Valentine Holders.
Need an excuse to put those broken crayons to good use? Create Stained Glass Hearts to decorate your windows and declutter your arts and crafts box!
Celebrate this beautiful day with a Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot! Help break up the monotony of February with an impromptu shoot, and you’ve got the perfect way to tell people in your life you love them.
Always remember how little they were on this Valentine’s Day with a Hearts Tree that captures their sweet little hands.
And last but not least, here are some great ideas for actual Valentine’s for classmates, teachers, grandparents, friends. Or just keep them for yourself because they’re so adorable!
You can find all these ideas and more on my Rub Some Dirt On It Pinterest page. I hope I got you excited for this fabulous holiday and that I can accomplish some more lovey dovey crafts this year, too! I just love this time of year!
