Howl! Hooray! It's Valentine's Day!

I just love, love, love Valentine's time!  That is, I love Valentine's Day, Valentine's Week...Valentine's MONTH!  And I've got lots of reasons to focus on the the pretty pinks and lovey-dovey reds...uhh, like freezing weather, cabin fever and a cloudy forecast to name a few.  Those little hearts and candies just seem to send warmth and cheerfulness right my way.  Ahhhhh....Valentine's Day...

Every year I do the best I can to create my own valentines.  With two boys at home, that makes for about 46 valentines that we need for school (don't forget the teachers!).  And why not make them for my Wolf Pack?  Plus another 50 or so...that's almost 100 smile-inducing valentines.  Add a couple bags of candy—BOOM!—mid-winter happiness.  

Now, before you start congratulating my ambition, let me define "creating my own".  Ideally this always looks like me crafting amazingly cute valentines out of recycled cereal boxes, displayed with my best handwriting and covered in glitter glue.  But other years, I'm just glad to have the time to tear the perforations provided in the over-the-counter valentines from the store.  It's the thought that counts, right?

Another super-duper simple tool I love is the Great Wolf Kids valentines.  You can download them online and print as many as you want.  Cut them out, add some names, send nice thoughts and gift them away.  Featuring some of our favorite Great Wolf characters, like Brinley Bear, Rachel Raccoon and Wiley and Violet the Wolf—they are beyond adorable!

From our Pack to yours—Happy Valentine's Day!
