Since H started school this year the making of valentine's for her classmates has begun. During my school years it was always fun to receive valentines. It was a simple card and maybe some conversation hearts in our cubbies. Now there are all sorts of things you can do and purchase.
Of course this year H's friends will be receiving BOJ's "You Warm Up My Heart" Valentines.
(Don't forget we have FREE SHIPPING til Feb 14th!!! so check out our honeycomb store)
I also did a fun craft with H & N to give to their grandparents, aunt and uncle (my siblings).
It started with an inspiration from my kids. One day H came up to me out of the blue and placed her hand on my chest and said "Heart!" and N quickly followed. I said "Thank you H, thank you N! What was that for?" H replied "I give you a heart mommy, because I love you!" Moments like that is what motherhood is all about.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Heavy weight paper
Paint (we used Crayola washable kids' paint)
Red/pink felt or construction paper
First paint child's hand with color of their choice. You can let them do it, I'm sure it's more fun for them this way. Place hand firmly on paper and slowly lift hand.
This is sure to bring a smile to your valentine! You can even do this as a "valentine tradition" and see how your child's hand grows each year.
Who will you give your "HEART" to today?
What are some unexpected moments in your life that made your day?
