The other day we made valentines for Sawyer's preschool class. Confession…we used the same printables from last year…I did however buy new candy :)
With all the excitement Nora wanted to join in so I promised her we would make Valentines she could sent to the grandparents. She immediately latched onto this activity so I quickly consulted the Pinterest for a simple idea. In the end I took a couple of toilet paper rolls out of the trash ;) and formed them into a heart shape (a.k.a. bent them in the middle). I just happened to have a plethora of red and pink card stock and some glittery red paint (yay for using up craft supplies). Then we got down to work!
Sawyer stamped a total of 7 hearts (1 for each member of our family, 1 for God and 1 for Jesus :) Then he was done. Nora, however, stamped her heart out for over an hour creating an endless supply of Valentine cards. This little girl loves herself a good craft. And Mommy loves a good, simple, clean craft.

This was seriously the easiest craft and it worked really well…you never know how these kids crafts are going to go. In fact it worked so well I even joined the fun and made a couple myself.
