I just wrote a post on my work’s blog that’ll be published this weekend about keeping crafting simple. I wish I could take my own advice, cuz today I have lost my mind. I was looking for ideas for the girls to make their class Valentine’s and found all kinds of other things, too! Like using chalkboard paint on $1 boxes of chocolate from the drug store:
and wrapping tootsie roll banks with paper to make them a little more festive:
ridiculous how easy they are to make, and adorable, too!
I think Big Girl might like to make bookmarks for her friends as Valentine’s, first grade is all about reading. I made a couple of prototypes that I’ll give to my girls as Valentine’s. The class ones will be made with smaller clips.
I think my girls are going to love ALL the treats I’ve made today!
I put a few sets of magnets in my etsy shop too that are a little on the Valentine-y side but work for anyone who likes pink, or hearts, or polka dots, or strawberries or cherries or lots of other things:
Lots of treats for everyone!
