This is a gentle reminder that Valentines day is February 14th!
First, a Valentines craft:
Today, the kids and I made some valentines day cards. Really, this was just a collage.
You need construction paper, glue, scissors. You can add any theme related tidbits you have. We had some jeweled hearts that the boys really liked gluing to their papers.
Mr. 3 decided to take the project in a completely different direction after he finished his decorating, and wanted to build 2 rocket ships.
Mr. 1 really enjoyed this project. We did the glue together (I helped squeeze and he told me where to put it) and then he put the decorations on top of the glue blobs.
I cut out different shapes for them to use: hearts, diamonds, moons, stars, flowers.
I’m quite pleased with our results!
Second, some gift ideas:
For my husband, I am making Heavenly Scotch Ham and leaving him the rest of a fancy bottle of scotch.
For me, I asked for flowers and part of the Brandon Sanderson Mistborn series.
For my dinosaur obsessed kids I got them the Dinosaur Train A to Z book, which I thought would just be pictures and lyrics to the song but actually includes information for each of the dinosaurs they list in the alphabet song! Also, they are getting a Dinosaur sticker and activity book made by Roger Priddy who I think has best sticker/activity books for preschoolers.
