DIY Valentine Series – Valentine’s Day Scratch-Off Tickets
Pin to Pinterest
In honor of Valentine’s Day I have created a printable for you and put together a quick and simple tutorial to surprise your sweetie or the kids with. These are fun homemade scratch off tickets that can be personalized for anyone, that makes them super fun and this one is for all ages. But I am throwing some ideas especially for the grown ups out there to enjoy. I don’ t think homemade Valentine’s have to be for kids only. For an adult you could write special messages – private messages, IOU’s for special treats or activities, or a promise of a date night. For kids you can fill theirs up with the a promise of a fun activity, 15 extra minutes to stay up, extra dessert, ice cream after school , or even just a simple I love you. Valentine’s and messages from the heart can mean so much , especially when they are made by your own hand. Print off a sheet of these and give it a try.
