love note jars

I am NOT a Valentine's Day fan.  In fact, I really shy away from it.  But then I started thinking that my kids like it--so I should probably like it for their sakes.

So I made some Love Note Jars using color inspiration from one of my favorite books of love poems (I shy away from the cheesy pink hearts).  Maybe they look silly...I don't know.  But the kids like them and they already started to put notes in them and we can read them all on Valentine's day. 

Go ahead... you can do the "awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww how sweeeeeeettt..." now. 

I'm rolling over how it says "back"-- just happens to be our initials and I accidentally lined it up that way.


I have a pen out and these little I Love You Because...pieces of paper near the jars so we can fill them out whenever we want.  I did tell everyone that we probably shouldn't write lots of love notes to ourselves;)



like the color combo?  bring on the gaudy reds and golds!




(yo r osaam dad = you are awesome dad)


Happy Love Note Writing!

I think those jars are so cute and I love the notes. I think it is a great way for kids to express themselves.
I am sure you all will have fun reading them.

Those are SO So cute! totally going to do something like that. I have tons of jars that have nothing in them. My kiddos would love this idea!

Super idea, Carrie! Write a note from me to you for your jar that says: You shared a totally amazing idea that builds up others!

That is such a sweet idea. It would really get siblings looking for the good on each other.
