I waited until the last minute yet again to create the valentines for the kids this year. I pre plan and make a lot of things, small holiday stuff isn’t one of them. (yes I consider Valentines a small holiday).
I took pencils and some pretty scrapbooking paper and created these pinwheels. Since the pencils and paper were all different each one turned out unique! The kids loved them!
I found this fun Spinning quote from online (from the movie Practical Magic?) “Do you ever put your arms out and just spin and spin and spin? Well, that’s what love is like.” And created these pencil flags (Free download valentines pencil or straw flags), with “to” and “from” on the other side so the kids could personalize them!
On Valentines day itself The DA, Baby Boy and I took cookies, frosting and sprinkles over to the school and helped in Lego Boy’s classroom. I love her “What cookie? I didn’t eat a cookie” face in the first picture when she thinks I caught her doing something wrong!!! She was pretty excited when I said she could EAT the cookie she decorated!
And of course Lego Boy- I love his concentration, from frosting to adding sprinkles this guy get’s down to business!!! His fun and energetic 1st grade classmates are hilarious, and it was so much fun to be a part of their party! You can also see the hole where he lost his first tooth last week!
