Get your sweeties ready for the big day with these fun, crafty & creative Valentine’s Day Countdown Ideas!
So can someone explain to me why chocolate countdown calendars like you get for Christmas aren’t a thing for Valentine’s Day? You know, the little thin cardboard box with all the tiny doors that have cute chocolates behind each one? I mean, if there is one food Valentine’s Day is known for, it’s chocolate, right?! Wouldn’t that make so much sense? I feel like the chocolate companies are missing out on this idea, bigtime!
In the meantime, I really like the idea of crafty Valentine’s Day Countdown Ideas. February can be so dark, you know what I mean? It’s still cold, it feels like winter is never going to end. School is dragging on. The sun still sets early. It’s just bleak (well, at least here in the midwest anyway!) That’s really my favorite thing about Valentine’s Day. I don’t even care if it’s a made up greeting card company holiday, February needs some crafting excitement!
I actually hadn’t ever really even thought of doing a Valentine’s Day countdown before this year, but now I’m really excited about. To be honest, we really don’t even make a huge deal out of the holiday at our house, a little bit of candy, a card, I might use food coloring to make pink milk or cook heart shaped pancakes for dinner. But really that’s it.
But I live for Valentine’s Day decorations. They just bring me so much joy. The colors, the hearts, the cuteness. All of it. So this year I’m embracing it. My house is going to look like Valentine’s Day threw up and I’m excited about it!
Whether you love it or it’s not your thing, I guarantee that your KIDS will be super excited about these Valentine’s Day countdown ideas! Time to get crafting!
