We're suckers for Valentine's Day. It's a good chance to teach kids about the importance of reaching out to people we care about. And it means even more if they make something themselves. Here are a few of our favorite (easy) DIY valentines:
Wee Alphas, a school of fish and lollipops masquerading as superheroes.
How cute is this DIY personalized puzzle that sends the message "love you to pieces"?
If you want to stick a special surprise in your Valentine, consider a Wee Society Tattly. This Molecule was designed to spread the message to kids everywhere that science is awesome.
This week, we created the first-ever Wee Tee, featuring Wee You-Things' Ruth (who has a purple tooth). Our littlest Valentine, Leo, wants to wear it every single day.
For more of what we think is awesome, follow Wee Society on Pinterest.
Here are some of our favorite Pins from this last week of January.
Inspiring kids spaces like this white room with bold prints, this more vintage-inspired yellow room, or this playful art wall.
And kids room with creative storage ideas like these beautiful built-ins or this super-cozy bed.
This brilliant puzzle stool, and other wood toys like a balloon-powered car or these DIY blocks by Beci Orpin.
This man painting a giraffe made us smile too.
