Valentines 2012



This afternoon, the kids and I made their valentines for school.
I got all of these ideas from Pinterest this year.  Don't you love it?!?!

Allie is at that age.   You know, she's become a tween.
And due to that it was very important that her valentines not say anything that would even slightly make it seem that she likes someone.  We searched and searched.
She finally settled on these bag toppers that we found over at Living Locurto.  



 Also due to her age, she wanted to do it ALL herself.
Which was fine by me so she cut everything out herself.
I didn't get a picture of her cutting them out.  
The only thing I did was fold the bag toppers.
She filled the bags and stapled them on.


She and I were both happy with the results.  
Adorable and not too personal!!!



Miss Maggie chose the most traditional valentines.
As well as the easiest of the four choices to actually do.
She cut most of them out but I helped some....

 These cuties are from kate.net.

 Because everyone else was using candy,
Maggie wanted to add candy to her valentines.
So, she taped suckers to the back of her cards.



Lillie chose the most time involved valentines.

 These came from Skip To My Lou.

They are butterflies made with blow pops and googly eyes...

 They turned out just adorable, too!


This little boy is quite into superhero's these days....

So, he chose superhero valentines to make.  
They were the hardest to cut out.  

 My left thumb is still not happy about the right handed scissors I used....
This idea came from Pinterest, of course, but the actual directions were here.

But, this smile was worth it.
And you have to admit, they are cute!

SO, we are ready to take these to school.
So glad that we got it done today.
And sooooo happy with out results.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pinterest!

These are adorable! I think it is great that you teach the children to "make" rather than buy!! That creativeness will come in handy as they get older!!
