Valentines Craft Kit – Denmark and South Africa


What the world needs now is love, sweet love.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with crafts and games inspired by global traditions.

Your craft kit comes with everything you need to create our interpretations from Denmark and South Africa.

South Africa

On Valentine’s Day, young women will pin the name of their sweetheart on their sleeve. This outward declaration stems from the Ancient Roman love festival, Lupercalia. 


In Denmark, joking letters called gaekkebrev are given to admirers. These letters typically include a poem or rhyme and are written on intricately cut paper designed like a snowflake. Instead of signing their name, the sender will use a code to give a hint at their identity: they replace each letter of their name with a dot.

Your kit includes:

  • 1 gaekkebrev with a poem
  • 1 blank gaekkebrev
  • 3 hearts made from foam, felt, and foil kraft board; string to tie as a bracelet or around your sleeve
  • Notecards explaining each tradition for your recipients

Pass it on!
