15 Last Minute Valentine's Day Ideas

So it's the day before the big day and you have absolutely nothing planned.  Kudos.

As the queen of procrastination all I can say is "been there, done that".

So I've put together 15 quick and easy (some stupidly easy) ideas to do for Valentine's Day.  Also, my husband is restlessly waiting for this post to be written, so I made sure I would be 100% okay with him doing any of the things on the list.

Easy Playdough Valentine and Free Printable

I knew for my daughter's preschool class I didn't want to give candy for Valentine's Day.  I figured they would all be getting enough of that.  I did want to give them something though that they could play with, so I thought...plahdough!

Thanksgiving Throwback

Prince and Princess Birthday Extravaganza

I knew I didn't want everything to be overwhelmingly pink (a few boys were coming) so I added in some yellow and purple.  So basically, it still turned out pretty feminine, but at least it wasn't all pink.
