Valentine's Day 2011

Somewhere in a box long packed away are two manilla envelopes holding valentines from 2nd and 3rd grade ... I loved getting valentines back then. And now, I love helping the boys make and give valentines.

Will's valentine was easy to decide. He spied the "I 'WHEELIE' LIKE YOU" valentine as I was working on my Valentine printables roundup (that you can find here) and immediately picked it. We packed small snack bags with fruit snacks, candy and Hot Wheels (bought during Black Friday sales). It was fun watching Will pick out the cars for his classmates with comments about why that particular car was for that particular friend. A big thank you to Mique of 30 Handmade Days for sharing this!

For Joseph's little classmates, we went with recycled crayon hearts. I already had the heart muffin pan because this idea is also recycled from last year. This craft is so easy and gets lots of oohs and aahs. Will again helped me get the crayons ready to melt. A big thank you to Ellen of The Long Thread for sharing the idea and the valentine. I've used it two years now ... and I'm sure it will not be the last.

What about you? What are you making at your house?
