Making Valentines

Last year, we made heart crayons for Isabella's Valentines...

This year...trying to plan ahead... 
I did my Pinterest search for Valentines Day early (or I thought)...

Perhaps you've seen these Valentines "You Rock" or the "You are Alright"

 So cute! 
I didn't want to give Big Sis too many ideas or she'd have a hard time deciding or want me to keep searching...and yes she knows what Google is!
I was kind of excited, these were so cute and we wouldn't be handing out candy hehehe...but then one night she says, "Mom we don't have to do those, we can just come up with our own design!!"

And just like that my Pinterest bubble was busted!  I even offered to buy them!! How easy would that be?

But the excitement in her eyes convinced me to let her "design" her own Valentine.
We even took a trip to Michael's with the trio in the choo choo wagon last Monday.
Timing was perfect because that very same day we got the info that we needed 29 Valentine's.  She was responsible for writing her friends' names and signing her own.  We were warned to start right away!

So instead we folded, she wrote, we stamped and stuck stickers on...

I think the fun lasted one or two days, then they became a chore.  Luckily letting her pick out the treat for her friends over the weekend brought back the excitement.  

We still have 11 more to do...And someday we'll have about 90 to do!

  1. Looks like fun! I just bought the cheap ones from the dollar store. I thought about the multiple work when Brenna had to make an all about me poster. I wonder if you could just make one poster for all 3 when the time comes. Ha! Probably not.
