Lego Valentines Free Printables

 

DIY Lego Valentine Kids CraftMy two sons have two very different attitudes about Valentines Day. My oldest son, Jacob, has always been interested in girls. Seriously. He came home from the first day of Pre-K 4 and said he had a girlfriend. He has been girl crazy ever since. My youngest son, Jackson, on the other hand, is 11 and thinks girls still have cooties (YIPPEE!)

Jacob buys his own Valentines Day cards and gifts these days. So I have to come up with Valentine’s Day cards that Jackson will like. He says, “They have to be normal”. Jackson hasn’t liked any of the Valentines in the stores. So we headed to Pinterest for some ideas. I think these are normal and pretty clever for any boy or girl that likes Legos. Follow this tutorial if you are looking for Lego Valentines with free printables.  (more…)
