Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite holidays to spend with my girls! We love making sweet Valentine’s crafts, baking and giving little gifts to our friends. This year, Little C and I thought it would be fun to give one of our favourite treats – Kinder Surprise eggs – to our friends as Valentines. I made a fun “love bug” printable to dress up the eggs for V-day:

Would you & your kiddos like to make some too? Here’s the free printable and directions! (With all that was in me, I resisted a typical V-day pun for this project, and went for something a little different. Ever since I saw this tutorial, I’ve been hooked on making gift bags from cardstock or scrapbook paper!)
