So cute! Well this year I wasn't quite as creative. And I was definitely less hands on.
We had intentions of making a ton of cards to mail out. This is as far as Brycen got before losing interest:
|paper towel roll heart stamper!|
B also has wisely decided he never wants his hand painted again. I am sure this is because I have painted his hand about 800 times in his short 4 years.
His friend, however, made his handprint into a monkey and his mom completed the card with vines . . . "I love hanging out with you, Valentine."
|Brycen had NO issues painting MY hand though.|
I added the "Happy Valentine's Day!" and later, some hearts using my Over app.
My mom showed me the little "arrow cut" secret because I was making a mess of the photos trying to make holes. She's a smart cookie, my mom.
And then we added the final touch:
The puns for lollipops aren't too kid friendly.
-I'd pop for you
-I'm a sucker for you, Valentine
-How many licks, Valentine?
So I left the cards as is. Brycen put the cards in envelopes, and sealed them with heart stickers. I realized this activity isn't really putting the kid to work, but I am sure he''ll make up for that next year.
Happy Valentine's Day, if you celebrate it! And I only do because I have the kiddo, and he makes every holiday 100 times better, for me.
