Valentine's Day and I have a love/hate relationship. You're probably wondering, "Why the hate on a day that's about love?". Well, I'm not loving the commerical side that pressures men into being nice and spending too much money once a year, if that's all that they do for their wives. However, as a day to say I love you and for kids to get creative and hand out valentine's, I love it.
This being June's first Valentine's Day, I was excited to plan out what we (or I) would make for all of her little friends. I wanted something with a vintage feel. I love the valentine cards that remind me of the ones my grandmas would give me when I was little. I did a little searching and found this one, which I printed on cardstock.
I think next time I would spread out the chocolate popcorn and then sprinkle the smarties on top. After stirring, the smarties tended to get clumped together. Leave it to dry overnight. I used a heart stamp to stamp some small brown paper bags.
I then hole punched the top, added the valentine and tied it with red and white bakers twine. Since most of June's friends are in the 18-month and under crowd, this was mainly enjoyed by their parents.
And, just because I'm a mom, here is our attempt at getting a valentine photo for the grandparents as we headed out for supper and a Jets game.
