Children can send and receive homemade Valentine’s Day cards with Hilltown Families

Mass Appeal

Kids love getting real mail! For the past 11 years, Hilltown Families has organized a Handmade Valentine Swap, free for all familiesa in Western Massachusetts. Here to tell us more is Sienna Wildfield, founder of hilltown Families.

A handmade valentine swap gives local families an opportunity to be creative together while connecting with other families in Western Massachusetts. Through the swap, participants mail out handmade Valentines to 10 assigned addresses, and in return, each participant receives handmade Valentines from 10 other participants.  

The swap is intergenerational and cards can be handmade by any combination of child and adult, so if kids kids aren’t completely up to the task, or if an adult would like to make their own design, there’s flexibility. Deadline to sign up is February 1st. By Feb 2 participants will be emailed their assigned names/address of families to mail their handmade Valentines to. Everyone is kindly requested to mail their Valentines off by Feb. 7th. Signing up to participate in the swap is open to all families in Western MA. To sign up visit
