Valentines for Children's Hospital

Each year local libraries start accepting Valentine cards that they will donate to the children at Children’s Hospital. This activity is one of our “favorite things.” We think this is a fantastic way to get even the smallest of kiddos involved in giving back. If your children love to color, give them some valentine hued crayons and markers and let them get to work. Better yet, host a playdate and have all of the kids make cards, it’s a win/win!  Just think about how happy they will make a child in need of smile!

Check the list below for libraries around the area that are participating by collecting or providing the supplies to make the cards.

  1. My 5 year old son and I made Valentine cards for the patients at Children’s for the first time this year. He loved stamping the hearts on the cards and putting the stickers on the envelopes. We will be dropping them off tomorrow at the Hoover library. I think this is such a wonderful and simple way to say that we are always thinking about you and love you. Thanks for the information.
