Fun Activities & Projects

Framed Valentine Art @ That Artist Woman – adorable portraits in red shadow box frames

Clay Vessels @ Laugh, Paint, Create! – air-dry clay + pony beads, sequins, buttons = major adorable-ness!

Pipe Cleaner and Felt Shape Flowers @ Montessori Mama – a bouquet of these would be a sweet gift

Valentine’s Day Surprise Ball @ Chasing Cheerios – my girls are going to love receiving these crepe-paper wrapped treasures on Valentine’s Day – so fun!

Kissing Hand Necklace @ No Time for Flashcards – lovin’ the Shrinky Dinks + one of my fave stories

Hearts and Blocks Valentines @ by little hands – I love homemade valentines and this is a great one for preschoolers!

Creative Products

The Lunch Mail Collection at Compendium is so, so cute!  Each set includes 30 little lift-the-flap cards (for $4.95) with positive messages for kids.  Not just for lunch boxes, these little notes would be great for leaving on your child’s pillow, sending in the mail, or as a place card at dinnertime.  There are six different collections – I like Dream Big and I’m Proud of You!

What We’re Reading

The Valentine books are in heavy rotation right now. Here are our all-time favorites!

Have a great week!
