Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away and I’m already planning out Maxwell’s Valentine’s Day cards. Last year we just did the traditional ones that come in the box from Target and honestly, that was fine with me. But this year since we can’t bring any food or candy into school, I wanted to do something fun for the kids. This Play-Doh valentine is the perfect non-candy idea for your little ones to give their friends and classmates.
Check out the easy DIY and my printable below.

This year I’m starting a new tradition for the holiday season – The 12 Days of Christmas. I have so many awesome memories of how my parents made the holidays magical for us growing up and I want to do the same for my boys. So this year, the 12 days leading up to Christmas, we are going to do something fun and festive every day.
Below I’m sharing how we are implementing The 12 Days of Christmas. Now the goal is just to have fun and make memories with your little ones, not to add more stress to your already full plate. You can be as simple or as creative as you want.
1.) First, think of 12 fun activities that you want to do with your kids.
If you’re in need of ideas, check out our holiday bucket list below.
2.) Write those ideas down or type them up on 12 separate pieces of paper.
3.) Next I got 12 boxes in varying sizes from Michael’s and placed a piece of each paper with an idea in each box. Then I wrapped them like presents.
4.) I numbered 12 gift tags and put them on each corresponding gift box and placed them under the tree.
Starting on December 13th, each day leading up to Christmas we will open one of the gifts and do the activity inside. That’s it! It’s all about having fun with your kids and giving them something they will remember in years to come.
As a mama, I am all about learning through play. That is why I love LeapFrog toys, including their new LeapBuilders Fruit Fun Elephant. Not only is it a toy, but it’s educational as well which I love. (Be sure to scroll down to the end of my post to see how you can be entered for a chance to win one for your little ones! )
The LeapFrog LeapBuilders Fruit Fun Elephant is a 21 piece animal themed set of blocks, geared towards children ages 2+. It promotes imagination as kids build with the blocks and stack them. The LeapBuilders Elephant features a smart cube in which kids can insert the blocks to hear educational songs as well as teach numbers, colors and fruits. In addition to encouraging vocabulary and phrases, it also promotes fine motor skills through building the blocks and pushing buttons. It’s compatible with other LeapBuilders sets so there’s also the option to purchase other learning blocks from other sets as your kids master the phrases to learn more content.
Maxwell loves to learn through his hands and with catchy music. He spent hours building with the blocks and dancing to the various songs. He saw it as play rather than learning. I love that this is a screen-free option to help expand his knowledge base. Plus any toy that promotes learning and keeps him entertained is a win in my book! It’s also really compact so easy to pick up and bring with you anywhere.
LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. is the leader in innovative learning toys for children that encourage a child’s curiosity and love of learning throughout their early developmental journey. For more than 20 years, LeapFrog has been helping children grow their knowledge and imagination through their award winning products.
