Trail of Hearts…..

Since it’s almost Valentines I thought I would share a fun

surprise that over the years we have done for each other.

It all started many years ago, BC {before children} when I did this for Handsome;

but over the years we have done it

 for the kids as well.

It’s easy. It’s fun. It can be free. 🙂

It makes the receiver feel SUPER special.


{I think I needed some intro music. humph!}

This isn’t just for Valentines…have fun with it throughout the year!

To make your trail you will need to cut out hearts…in any kind of paper….to use for the trail.

We have used construction paper, aluminum foil, vintage paper, scrapbook paper, foam,

computer paper, etc….whatever you have around!

Start your trail from wherever you know the person will enter the house.

{Or, if you want them to wake up to it…start it at their bed.}

Make your trail leading to any fun place…or more than one place….

that will end in some kind of treat/fun/surprise, etc.

You can write things on your hearts…messages/arrows, etc.

Fun places that our trails have lead to???

A candlelit room with a bed covered in rose petals.

A special dinner.

A fun mini-party.

A basket of candy/treats.

A new violin.

A coupon book full of fun things!

A new outfit.

Something handmade just for them.

A special breakfast on test day.

Outside to a fun picnic and game.

And many more……

You can have so much fun this! Any time someone in our family sees a trail of hearts…..eyes sparkle and hearts are filled.  It’s a great way to bless your spouse, encourage your children….have fun with it!

 On non-Valentine days…think of where your spouse or child needs to be encouraged or affirmed, and make a trail of hearts to something special for them.
