We worked on LM's Valentines last weekend. A few weeks ago, I printed off some ideas I found on Pinterest and other places on the Internet for "boy valentines", and let him choose which one he liked. He chose "You're a Reel Catch" - a printable I could purchase from this cute store on Etsy and then would be attached to bags of gummy worms. Let's be honest here - choosing the valentine, for LM, was all about what candy he wanted to have. Ahem. Here are some photos of the nice time we had together, assembling the creations.
I found a great deal on these little cello bags at Jo-Ann's - way cheaper than at the party store.
The bags came with twist ties, but I decided to class it up a little with some orange ribbon.
I ended up having three spools of ribbon unused.
I returned them, for a savings of $4.19.
S teased me for saving that big amount with my return.
It was really just about getting it out of my house. ;-)
LM's job was to count out six worms and put them into each bag.
I then strung the cards onto the ribbon and tied them to the bags.
He took his work very seriously.
Of course, there was some quality control checking along the way...
He seemed thrilled to be part of the activity.
He will take them to his classmates on Friday.
We mailed a few to his cousins in Indy,
and delivered a few to his cousins in Dallas.
We enjoyed doing this craft together, and I think he will take pride in handing them out on Friday, telling his teacher and classmates that he helped make them.
See you soon.
