3 cute (and, more importantly, easy) Valentine's craft projects the kids will love

It is almost time for the most heart-shaped and love-filled day of the year again.

Everyone always says that Valentine's Day changes once you have kids, but seriously; who wants to be out in a busy and over-priced restaurant anyway (she says bitterly...).

Just joking, guys. Anyway, oysters and Prosecco aside, there are so many other fun ways to fill this "holiday" without having to even leave the house. Meaning, of course, that you not only save on the (over-priced) wine, but also on babysitters. Win-win.

This year (like last year), I am planning an afternoon of arts and crafts with some little friends, and luckily, there is no shortage of Valentine appropriate arts and crafts ideas if you do a quick Google search, but to save you time, here are some I am planning to engross Nahla and her little friends in:
