Can you handle a few more valentines?
Finally! My camera is working so I can show you what my 5 year old and I made for her class Valentines. We had so much fun making them and she was such a trooper. She has 22 kids in her class and she insisted that she write all her friends names herself. I think her hand hurt a little but she was so happy!
I bought packages of cards from Hobby Lobby at 40% off along with the stamp at 50% off and I already had the scrapbook paper and muffin cups on hand. I just used paper that looked like they had stems on them and cut around them, then we punched out hearts for the leaves. We put a heart sticker for the center and a lip sticker for her kiss and Voila'!
For her teacher gift I bought a bottle of lotion from Bath and Body Works. We cut out her hand prints using heart paper of course, and then stuck them around the bottle. I then wrote, "Thought I'd give you a hand or two for all you do!"
She was so proud of her little hands!
My little Valentine!
Claire also insisted on letting her teacher know how much she loves her!
My son had a valentine box contest for his class. They were being judged on who could bring in the most creative box. When my husband heard that, he was in! Well lets just say that this guy loves a challenge and for him the bigger the better. So, James thought doing a shark with an open mouth for the valentines to go in would be great, and my husband thought that sounded perfect!
This is what they came up with.....
James was pretty happy about his completed project, he couldn't wait to get to school!
James ended up winning 1st prize for the most creative Valentines' Box, he was very excited but I think my husband was a little giddy when he found out!
Hope you enjoyed it, we sure did!
