We kept the creation of our Valenines simple, and home made for this exchange. Together Owen and I went to Michael's craft store and picked out a few new paint colors -- previously we did not own any pinks! -- and some cute little cards from the dollar spot.
We stamped the paint on to the cards using a heart shaped sponge (cut by yours truly) and various sized heart shaped cookie cutters -- all things we had at home already.
O has been really into the paint table at school lately, so I thought helping to paint or stamp with paint the cards would be his jam. He was into it for about five minutes until it got on his hands -- this boy is willing to hold worms and dig in dirt but pain? A no go for him. We tried again later and with a little I do one you do one action we made it through all of our cards.
I added the little L-O-V-E to the cards and wrote the message on the inside.
So simple, yet still very sweet!
