I adore these cute little animals made from upcycled toilet paper or paper towel rolls. So simple to make, you can turn them into little favor boxes with treats inside, finger puppets, or just use them for imaginative play. We filled them with candy and glued hearts to the bottom of ours for a sweet Valentine's Day gift. What will you do with yours?

Way to make young love feel like a 50 year old marriage, School.
Luckily, we've got a cute and easy way to pop out a few dozen unique Valentines Day cards, no artistic talent required. It might even warm the heart of my little Valentine's Day Grinch.
In addition to being incredibly cool and thrilling (I’m not the only one sitting on the edge of her seat through most of the events, am I?), the Winter Olympics are a time to come together with family and friends, enjoy wintertime, and feel pride in our country's athletes.
