Hilltown Families’ Annual Handmade Valentine Swap

Making handmade valentines is an excellent way to push against the commercialization of yet another holiday while being creative with your family and friends. Hilltown Families annual Handmade Valentine Swap is open to all and is an excellent way to share kindness and creativity with friends and family. Through the swap, participating individual, families, and groups mail out handmade valentines to ten assigned addresses, and in return, they receive handmade valentines from ten other participating families. The cards can be handmade by any combination of child and adult, so if your kids aren’t completely up to the task, or if an adult would like to make their own design, there’s flexibility.
