We Love You Because...

Toys In The Dryer

Welcome to Toys In The Dryer 14 Days Of Valentines! 
For the next fourteen days straight (including Saturdays and Sundays) we'll be posting Valentines related posts!  Even our Fun Stuff Fridays linky party will be Valentines focused!  We'll be going a little off of our usual schedule during this time, but we hope you enjoy our tribute to this lovely holiday.

Show your kids that you love them and boost their self esteem with these easy "We Love You Because..." message boards.

I have to admit, this is another one of our Pinterest inspired posts.  I found this husband geared Love Message Board tutorial and totally thought this would be great for my girls!  I'm always looking for unique ways to show them that I love them.

These are so easy to make!  In fact, they are so easy, I didn't feel the need to take step-by-step photos.  I'm pretty sure you're smart enough not to need a visual...

1) Grab your computer, some paper, some scissors (optional), an 8x10 photo frame, and make sure your printer has ink.

2)  Print out the words "We Love You Because..." (or I Love You Because... if you are a single parent) in whatever font and color you want.  Make sure to align it toward the top of the page so you have room to write on the bottom.  Add a border or other embellishments if you want.

3) I cut my white paper slightly smaller and mounted it on a background piece of paper to add some interest.  This is completely optional.

4) Put your paper in the frame and use dry erase markers to write messages on it every day!

Nutty's favorite color is pink so I made her board pink.  Tottie's favorite color is purple so I made her's purple.  I didn't make them any more different or they would have gotten mad because they have to have everything the same!

  2. Hi Jamie! Thank you so much for joining the blog hop...following you via GFC :)

  3. I love this idea of 14 days of Valentine's posts. I also love the idea of the "We love you because..." frames. I too saw the same tutorial. I so agree that mine for my boys would need to be similar as they too like for things to be the same!

    1. Hope you will share with us if you decide to make some yourself =)


We LOVE your comments! We read every single one! Thanks for taking the time to connect with us. XOXO- Jamie and Lindsi
