Valentine’s Day is on its way!

My dd and I started making a list of the people we would like to make Valentine’s Day cards for on our outing today.  We need to start soon since it takes almost two weeks for a card to reach Colombia (where my in-laws reside) from here.  So, when we got home we searched for images of homemade cards for some inspiration and while she is in her room for quiet time I am trying to put together some more ideas for Valentine’s Day activities.  If you have any favorite traditions, then please share.
