This past weekend we did the kids’ Valentine’s cards…Woo hoo for thinking a little bit ahead and getting them done a couple of weeks early! We did similar cards to the ones Noah handed out last year, if you don’t remember just click here to see last year’s.
Noah wanted to give out chocolate hearts to his classmates so we came up with this idea!
I just hot glued a Dove’s foil covered milk chocolate heart above his hand and presto, magic they were done. If you want to write the ‘To’ and ‘From’ on the back of the card, make sure you (or your child) do it before you glue the candy on, it makes it so much easier!
Penelope wanted to hand out lollipops so we did Noah’s pose from last year. She was so excited because this is what Noah did in his first year of preschool and she always wants to be just like her big brother 🙂
Once again, I just took the pictures and uploaded them to Picnik where I added in the text and the hearts. Unfortunately Picnik will be no more in a few months (boo!) I think most of Picnik’s features are moving over to Google+ so you need to join up over there to use their free photo editing software. I haven’t done it yet, if you have let me know in the comments as I would love to hear your opinions on it!
Have you started thinking about Valentine’s Day cards yet? This is all my kids have been talking about lately, oh my. Our house is currently filled with lots of cute little handmade heart cut-outs colored with red and pink markers and lots and lots of tape to hang them up on the walls…man, they go through a lot of tape. Good thing we have a lot of walls.
