Don’t you love Saint Valentine’s Day? I think it is one of my favorite feast days. As a child I remember making Valentine Boxes at school to collect our valentines. I think we made them out of empty tissue boxes that we decorated. Back then, Valentine’s Day was very secular for me. As an adult I see it as a great way to Catechize. Our Catholic faith is all about love; REAL LOVE!
This year I thought I would make a coloring sheet of Valentines to color, cut out and gift. I recommend printing these on sturdy paper such as cardstock. You can buy this in a package at craft stores or you can get individual sheets from your local copy/office product store. Remember to print coupons from craft store websites to get a good deal.
You might embellish them with glitter gel pens or regular glitter. I spent a lot of time designing these and I hope you like them. Below is the link and an example of what they might look like colored. I used a combination of Crayola washable markers and Prismacolor Colored pencils as well as BIC and Sharpie permanent markers.
For a fun project using these Valentines, see my post, Vellum Valentine’s (Stained Glass).
