14 Days of Why We Love You

Simple Valentine Craft Treat Surprise Leading Up To Valentine’s Day

Creating Easy Valentines with a Touch of Disney

A few weeks ago I asked a dear friend of mine, “What can I do to make Valentine’s Day More Special This Year?” With everything being so gloomy and not much going on we all could use a pick-me-up. She told me she does a 14 Day “Reasons Why I Love You” for each of her kids leading up until Valentine’s Day- giving each child their own special thing she loves about them. Well this certainly sparked my interest. Since I am on leave due to Covid and having my children virtually learn at home I FINALLY have the time to do things like this! Normally I am always working.

Keep in mind, I am not a brilliant crafter. I am not that neat and I am certainly not perfect. I am not one of those awesome crafting people that you see make beautiful things on YouTube. (I am way better at makeup LOL) I am full of Disney World Vacation knowledge and planning. I’m just sharing a simple little easy-to-do fun Valentine’s Day idea to pass the time! My kind of crafting is easy enough to do with your children or at school. If only I had a working printer! So please don’t judge me.

Last Friday I went to Walmart and went into their seasonal Valentine isle and stocked up on some goodies to surprise the kiddos with each day – and some sugar-free treats for the hubby. I got some things like: a box of fun-sized Skittles, a box of fun-sized Welch’s fruit snacks, bag of Jolly Ranchers, bag of Dove Chocolates, heart-shaped boxes of Russell Stover Valentines and some Russell Stover Heart Shaped Chocolate Caramels and chocolate covered heart marshmallows for $.50 cents each. I also found these cute Disney gummies… You all know I’m always on the lookout for anything Disney.

  • box of fun sized Skittles
  • box of Welch’s Fruit Snacks
  • bag of Jolly Ranchers
  • bag of Dove Chocolates
  • Russell Stover Heart Shaped Valentine Box of Chocolates
  • Russell Stover Heart Shaped Chocolate Caramel and Heart Shaped Chocolate Caramels
  • Box of prepackaged Disney Gummy Rings

The Valentines started out all cute. But then I realized I needed to add some Disney pizazz into this.

I thought to myself I need to add some Star Wars into this! My family is a major Star Wars fan family. If you are not a Star Wars fan you will probably not understand my next group of Valentine’s.

Supplies for the Valentine’s:

  • Construction Paper
  • Craft Paper from Dollar General
  • Marker
  • Glue
  • Gem Stickers from Walmart
  • Star Wars Stickers from Walmart
  • Disney Store Tissue Packaging Paper
  • Disney Cars Stickers from Dollar Store
  • Valentine’s Day Stickers from Dollar Store

Then I started to forage around the house to see what other supplies I have to see what I could come up with that was Disney related. I’m not the most artistic person so I am just going with what I have to work with.

Does anyone recognize that Disney Paper??? That is Disney tissue paper that comes from Shop Disney orders. I love saving the Shop Disney Tissue Paper for any future gifts or crafts that might pop up!

Anyone recognize that Mickey head? hehe! I save all Disney World Travel Documents because you just never know when you want to reminisce or you might find a use for it.

What are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year?
