Every year, I have grand intentions for the Valentine's Day cards that my girls will bring to school. I always think there will be plenty of time over the course of several weeks for each child to individually make 20 or so cards for all of their friends. But the reality is that here it is — the day before Valentine's Day — and the girls and I have yet to finish a single card.

Still, we don't have to give up the heart-felt handmade notion altogether. A quick Google search turned up some great ideas for quick and easy Valentine cards that the girls can make to bring in to school. And most importantly, they all use supplies that I already have right here in the house.

Here are a few fun and fabulous handmade Valentine's Day cards to make with your kids tonight:
