You can spend a lot of money on Valentine's Day decor and cards, or you can use the holiday to explore your creativity and develop new talents. Show you care, save money and be sustainable by making your own Valentines. The following links have countless ideas and tutorials.

Sustainable Valentine's crafts can include upcycled heart garland, heart luminaries, origami or twig hearts.

As a part of any lesson plans, include information about the history of Valentine's Day and St. Valentine. According to DLTK's Crafts for Kids,

St. Valentine, for whom this holiday is of course named, was an actual historical figure. He was a Roman physician who was also a Christian priest during the days of the early church. This was at a time when Christians saw tremendous persecution and many practiced in secret.

There are actually a couple versions of the Valentine’s Day story. One version, has it that Valentine was so loved by the children of the town that they would constantly write him notes speaking of their affection--hence the origin of exchanging valentines.

In the other version of the story, Valentine is working to heal a blind boy and is arrested by Roman soldiers for his work as an “undercover priest”. Valentine is shortly thereafter sentenced to die. And yet before he is taken off to be executed, he takes the time to write to the little blind boy a note explaining to him Jesus' love, enclosing a small treat. According to this story, when the boy eats the treat his eyesight is miraculously restored, and he is able to see well enough to read Valentine's note--which is, of course, at the exact same moment that Valentine is executed.
