Why not write an equation poem for someone you love for Valentine’s Day? These snappy poems are short enough to fit on a handmade card!
Just pick a person to make your valentine for.
my sister Patty
Brainstorm lists of specific things about your person.
- funny movies
- dark chocolate
- therapy dogs
- curly hair
places they like:
what I’m grateful for:
- makes handmade gifts
- is the family peacekeeper
Then brainstorm a few equations.
- laughter + dark chocolate = Patty
- sand castles + freckles = Patty
- funny movies + handmade gifts – arguments = Patty
- seashells + wolves + Patty = happiness
- dark chocolate + Patty = happiness
Pick your favorite and add it to your card for a personal touch.
