the same card we handed out at pre-k last year. I tried to steer her towards something different but she had final say so we went with it. Just like last year we picked out some fun festive fabric and hung it where we had some good light. Then we spent twenty minutes trying to explain to Rowan how to make a shocked and disturbed face like she really had an arrow in her head. It's really hard let me tell you. When we finally got a good one I pulled it into Photoshop to edit it and throw on some text. I print stuff like this at our local Staples for cheap. I had already grabbed packs of six long stick heart lollipops at Target for $1 so when we got home with the prints all we had to do was cut slits and stick the pops in. So easy and really fun to hand out!
using this recipe and chose to do three different shades of pink so there was a variety. With my ocd kicking in a little I weighed and rolled it all into perfect little balls.
I printed a similar dough recipe onto little cards, changing the name to "heart dough" and adding a XOXO Stella to the end. I took them into Staples and had them laminated so that her little friends could use the recipe over and over at home. We put everything together in the clear bags and finished it off with the tag and glitter tape.
I'm a major fan of Valentine's that don't have candy and I think her friends parents were too!
to this fun one on Pinterest and was thrilled to see it even came with a printable! I picked up several inexpensive glass measuring cups at Target and had the girls investigate their teachers favorite candy - Mrs. Nelsons was M&M's. Who doesn't need more Pyrex in their lives? We also tied on a EOS lip balm for a little something extra.
I am already dreaming of the fun boyish ones i'll get to do with Robin in a couple of years but for now i'm off to find some fun treats for St. Patrick's day!
It's my own personal preference to go all out with things like Valentine's. No judgement here for those that have just as much fun picking out pre made cards but I cringe when other mom's tell me they "hate me" (all in good fun) when I post pictures of a crazy fun holiday craft I just busted out. Only love here people, only love.
