Let’s get all lovey dovey for a minute

12 Feb

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:

Valentines 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?

Emmet ..Ian/emmet

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.

    Could have sworn I commented here but must have done it on FB! Very cute and clever. What’s the b-day theme this year?

      I think Carin got pics up on Facebook so maybe that’s where your comment is. Your invite is winging its way to you as I type (unlike your christmas card that is sitting with a half dozen or so others). You should probably wait for the invite to arrive instead of me telling you the theme!
