Soon it’s valentines day so in addition to being in birthday mode, we (mostly Carin) took a slight detour….
the valentines. Ian and Kaiden are having a party at school today so we made these valentines for them to exchange with their classmates:
Super each to make. Get some twinkies but don’t eat them ( okay it’s not THAT easy). Print out the little minion characters and tag (“you’re one in a minion”). cut it out and tape around the Twinkie if you managed not to eat it. glue on some googly eyes, use bakers twine to string the tag and staple it to the wrapper. Walaa! Repeat 40 times.
ian class was encouraged to make a valentine box at home and bring it to school to collect their valentines in. Ian chose “hard hat Emmet”. Again pretty easy. We already had hard hats in the costume shop. Carin slapped on a coat of red paint and put his name on the side. We used a shoestring potato can for the head. This was painted with both spray paint and acrylics. Ian did a great job on his hair don’t you think?
And to show appreciation for each of the teachers and room helpers, Carin filled a jar with dove chocolates and put a cute little printable on the lid, string some fun yarn around the rim and tag each jar.
