Love Notes Frame + Free Printable! Perfect for a family Valentine activity from

Love Notes Frame + Free Printable

This simple Love Notes Frame + Free Printable has been such a fun activity in our house.  It might possibly be the the easiest thing I have done that has been so rewarding for myself and my kids!  Print the printable, add a frame and grab a dry erase marker!  The love and affirmations do good for your soul…and your small people’s words to you mean just as much as yours to them!

Love Notes Frame + Free Printable from Print off the background, add to a frame and express you love this Valentine's Day!

Who doesn’t love to hear what people love about you?  As much as some might deny it, positive affirmations are amazing!  I feel as families we are so comfortable with each other and we know we “have” to love each other that we sometimes don’t give the love each deserves.

That was my nice way of saying I live in a house of boys.  A husband, 3 small man children and a boy dog.  Most days it is like a frat house up in here.   There is lots of yelling.  Lots of rough housing.  Lots of name calling (poop head, butt face, etc.).  Everything is sticky and more than not…smelly.

I love you because Free Printable 8 x 10

I made this printable and placed it in a frame I already had on hand.  I made an 8 x 10 both in portrait and landscape orientation and also a 5 x 7 size in both directions so hopefully you have an extra frame you can use around the house as well.
