Fire Truck Valentines Rubber Ducks | FREE Printable Tags

Fireman Rubber Duck Valentines

Fire Truck Valentines

Sound the alarm! Valentine’s Day is almost here! You know by now that we have TWO firefighters in our family. That’s right! Not only do we have Bob, who has been a volunteer firefighter for more than half of his life, but we also have Landon.. junior fireman extraordinaire! This boy’s love for firetrucks and all-thing-fire-fighting has been evident since he was a toddler and shows no sign of slowing down. Spending time with Daddy at the firehouse is his absolute favorite past time! His grandparents even got him his very own fireman gear for his birthday last year!! He loves wearing it all the time, but ESPECIALLY to the firehouse.

So what does this Mom make for her #1 junior fireman?  Fire Truck Valentines, of course!  These cute little Valentines are perfect for the little kid crowd and they are also candy-free which is great if you have any allergies to keep in mind.

To make these Valentines, you will need:

Fireman Rubber Ducks
Twine or ribbon
Free printable tags

Download the free printable tag that I made by saving it on your hard drive.  (Don’t forget where you saved it!)  If you would like to personalize your tags before printing them, it’s very easy to do so.  I opened my tag in PicMonkey (you can use PicMonkey or any other photo editing software).  I typed “Love, Landon” in the open space on the bottom right-hand corner of the tag.  Then I saved the tag.

Print out your desired number of tags.  I printed mine at a size of approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches on heavy white card stock.

Punch a hole in the top left-hand corner of the tag.

Tie a tag to each duck using twine or ribbon.

“I’m Stuck on You” Glue Stick Valentine + FREE Printable Cards

Glue Stick Valentine Free Printable

As the winter months drag on, I usually find myself sending in a fresh round of glue sticks, crayons and other assorted school supplies to restock Lily’s depleted pencil box. Last week while I rounded up some things to send to school, I came up with the idea for a Glue Stick Valentine. I thought this would not only make a great non-candy Valentine option, but it might help out the teacher if every kid received a shiny new glue stick.

If you stocked up on glue sticks during back to school shopping, you might still have some on hand.  I ordered this Classroom Pack of 60 Elmer’s Glue Sticks on Amazon and had enough for the entire class with plenty left over.

16 Beauty and the Beast Inspired Party Ideas

Beauty and the Beast Inspired Party Ideas

I have such fond memories of watching the Disney’s original Beauty and the Beast, which first hit movie theaters in 1991.  I fell in love with the music and it was one of the first musicals that I memorized the entire soundtrack from start to finish.  When Lily was born, Beauty and the Beast was one of the first Disney movies that we watched together and since the age of 2, Belle has always been one of her favorite princesses.

We love the live Beauty and the Beast Stage Show down at Hollywood Studios, too!  We are so excited to see the live action Beauty and the Beast movie that will arrive in theaters this March.  I am especially thrilled to see Emma Watson take on the role of Belle – that makes the Harry Potter fan in me SUPER happy!

What better way to celebrate this movie release than compiling a collection of Beauty and the Beast Inspired Party Ideas!
