Our classroom valentines are such a hit with kids and parents. The child can choose the valentine that best reflects their personality and the hobbies they may have.

We invited a bunch of kids to Pear Tree for a photo shoot, and created this video so we could show you some fun photography tips for Valentine’s Day that you can recreate at home.

Then we put the photos in our favorite new Valentine’s Day cards to see how they’d look!
