  • Well, I always try to encourage my son to make them..but he's never been interested..he prefers the store bought ones.I have a girl now so maybe when she starts school she'll be more into making valentines with me,lol.
    I do make candy bags for my son to bring too..so at least thats something,lol.

  • We buy them. We went to the store yesterday and I let them pick them out. When my daughter was in preschool she and I made them one year, because there were only 12 in the class but with 25 kids - it just gets out of hand!

  • We have ALWAYS bought them. it was easier and faster. However, this year my SD(9) wanted to do some craft stuff this weekend....so since she had no idea what she actually wanted to do/make, i reccommended making valentines. SHE LOVED IT!!! It was a lot of fun. It took a while because we had to take breaks because of my DD (19 months). She wanted to help. ha ha. My SS (5) didn't want to make them. He said it would be more fun to buy them. ha ha!

  • We always buy them. It's fun to let the kids pick out which design and/or character they want. The kids may make some for just family though, because we're more special.
