It’s Valentine’s Day, when people all over America give each other flowers, balloons and chocolate to show that they love each other, even though we all actually love each other every day. They also give cards, and for kids who bring cards for their entire class at school, this becomes a pretty big project. You have to pick out a set of cards at the store or else make your own. Then you have to decide whether the boys and the girls all get the same kind of card, or should you give them different ones. Then there’s the matter of attaching a treat: should it be Hershey kisses, or pencils with hearts on them, or those candy hearts that say things like “I’m Yours”? If you like putting together Valentines, you can make this as complicated as you like…and if you do the math right, you’ll have a couple of treats left over for yourself.
