Card Making Extravaganza

Dear Kids,

On Valentine’s Day last month, I got a little crafty at work. Turns out, making handmade valentine’s cards is still a lot of fun! (And free when you have a very generous boss and a lot of red printer paper that everyone hates.)

Here’s your card, Kitten:

Buddy, here’s yours:

Here’s Daddy’s (Inside it says: I dig you. I know, I’m a dork.)

And, just for good measure, a birthday card for a friend:

Okay, back to work!!

Valentine Apples

We had a little Valentines fun at snack time 🙂

I’ve been giving this tiny cookie cutter a workout this month! When I got it, I’ll be honest, I almost tossed it. Why would you ever make a cookie that small?? Turns out its best use is negative space. You go, tiny cutter! I’m sorry I ever doubted you.

You Rule! Valentines

You Rule! Valentines

I confess! I saw this on Pinterest and thought out was a great non-candy Valentine option. And sooo easy!

I printed up the ‘You Rule’ sentiments on card stock, 4 to a page. I cut them out and made small slits with a razor for the ruler to go through. Kitten wrote all her classmates names on her Valentines and I pinch-hit for Buddy.

Stick the rulers through and we were done!

You Rule Valentine

Happy Valentines Day!

I <3 You Cookies

I ❤ You Cookies

Mimi came over to make Valentines Day cookies! She brought a big heart cookie cutter with her. Low and behold, I had two other cutters in different sizes – lightbulb! We made some uber heart cookies.

We let Kitten cookie cut to her heart’s content, swapping out the cutter every few cookies. Then, after baking, Mimi and I iced while Kitten sprinkled.

Stack them up, and – Viola! Could anybody doubt your love for them??

Fun with Kids – Lollipop Valentines

Lollipop Valentines

These are the Valentines I made for the kids last Valentine’s Day. Full disclosure: I got this idea from Pinterest. I took a picture of Kitten holding her hand out in a fist and then I printed them off and stuck a lollipop in there. It looked super cute! Buddy wasn’t as cooperative, so I found a picture I already had of him and put the lollipop in the dinosaur’s mouth. Don’t worry; I used real lollipops for the actual Valentines!
