I know it is Thursday and time for What I have learned, but I am going to postpone it until tomorrow. I wanted to share what we are making for our Valentines this year. I wanted to post it in enough time to leave you with some good ideas to get rolling with your own Valentines.
Every year, I make the kids Valentines with a photo card. It makes it fun and personal. So let’s start with Jex:
Here is Jex’s card:
Once we print the photos, I find that it is easy to mat them on mat stacks.
They work perfect with 4x6 photos and can be bought at Hobby Lobby.
I printed this little number out to go on the back.
That way the kids can personalize and address each one.
You are welcome to use this little printable as well.
Go here to find it.
As a treat to go with Jex’s Valentine:
A mustache attached to a fun straw, a water bottle, and a drink mix.
We placed them in these fun bags, and then tied them all up and added the Valentine.
I came up with this little idea on my own.
To go along with the card:
Hot chocolate and heart marshmallows, all dolled up in a cute polka dot bag.
It was easy to place these inside, and then just staple the card on.
Isaac’s card looks a little something like this:
For his treat, I get to make the class something. His preschool allows that which is so fun.
So I am using these items to make some really cute mini cupcakes.
I haven’t made them yet, because I want them to be fresh for the big day.
I plan to make cupcakes in mini ice cream cones with a little pink icing on the top. I hope these will look just like mini ice cream cones, which happen to be one of Isaac’s “favorite” treats.
I plan to place them in these cute boxes and wrap them up in these fun clear bags. Then attach the Valentine.
…and because I couldn’t leave out the little miss, here is her Valentine:
Well a couple for her…
I couldn’t resist.
Thanks for checking out our Valentines. I plan to share what Isaac’s treat looks like on the big day.
