Since M started preschool, we have been having fun coming up all sorts of ideas for Valentine cards. Last year we made bookmarks, this year, Valentine Pin Wheels.
I wish I could say I was creative enough to have come up with this idea on my own, but I purchased this entire kit from Paper Source. It came with the pin wheel paper, the pixy stix, the fasteners and jewels, and the pink hearts with the sticker on the back to say who the Valentine was from.
If you want to make these on your own, here’s a great tutorial on how to make the pin wheels. All you would need is the pixy stix, construction paper hearts, fasteners, and stickers.
M’s favorite part was bedazzling the pin wheels with the hot pink jewel
She can’t wait to pass these out to all her friends this Thursday! Is there a special Valentine craft you are planning on doing? Would love to hear
P.S. The winner of the Brookside Chocolate Giveaway is Amelia!!! Congratulations! Lookout for an email from me
Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? This is the first year M understands what Valentine’s Day is. She is so excited! She told me she wanted to put hearts all over the house, make heart cookies, and make hearts for her friends.
We hung felt hearts on just about anything we could find.
Together, we made heart garland for the fireplace.
I saw this cute idea on Pinterest. M helped me wrap the yarn around the the pipe cleaners
She made Valentine Bookmarks for her friends.
And we made and ate delicious sugar cookies.
Only thing left is to make my favorite rice krispy treat with my favorite candy, Rolos. I made these last year and loved them. Go here for the recipe.
What are you making for Valentine’s Day?
P.S. Thank you for the beautiful flowers, and the box of delicious chocolates, and for M’s squishy teddy bear. She loves it
