Valentine Projects

We enjoy Valentine's Day and have enjoyed making our
Valentine's for school and friends.
This year we did a couple of projects.

Ice Cream made the popcorn bag and we taped microwave popcorn on the back. Ice Cream was excited when everyone said they really liked his Valentine. (For a boy, that does not really like craft things, I think he was glad he made something original.)

Candy was more then excited to make her "FEET".
It took us over a week to make them and get all the names on it.
She wanted to write everyones names so it took
awhile as she is not a fast writer and gets distracted easily.
She really enjoyed passing them out.
We put two pencils on the back for all her school friends. Ice Cream enjoyed making his Valentine box once I suggested we make a pokemon box. We covered it in gold paper and he cut some cards up and pasted them on his box.

We also made treat bags for our friends in the neighborhood. We filled bags with gummy bears and put a note that said, "You are BEARY special to us." Fun ideas to remember for next year.
