Children will enjoy making old fashioned Valentine cards to send to their loved ones and decorating a special box to keep their very own valentines in. We will look at authentic Valentines sent from soldiers and from their loved ones back home. This was an important time for soldiers because many of them had wives and children back home that they missed very much. Many soldiers had a sweetheart that they thought about daily and could not wait to see again. Soldiers would send a Valentine home to them in hopes that they would also receive one in return. Children, spouses, and sweethearts could not wait to show how much their soldier is truly missed.
