Valentine’s Day is this week, and while I feel it is a bit of an over rated holiday (we SHOULD love our loved ones EVERYDAY) I still decorate for it and get excited about it.
More for my kiddos than anything else.
I wanted to go ALL OUT for Reece’s first Valentine’s party at preschool when he was 3, but held back because he was only in preschool.
Not to mention, I was an exhausted mom of a 3-1/2 and 1-1/2 year old and could only handle buying what was cheapest at the dollar store (is there such a thing?!) and MAYBE sign his name.
Last year, same story different year.
Although, I think I made HIM sign his name.
This year, I decided to do something fun!
Around here we are fans of maps and color, so I decided to combine the two…
I found these adorable crayon packages at Target…
Tear pages out of the atlas.
Cut out heart shapes…about 6″ large.
Glue a crayon pack onto one side of the heart.
Write “You color my world, friend!” on the other side.
Sign your name.
Share the love!
and a giveaway
In the same section of Target where I found the awesome packs of crayons I also found the fun felted heart garland.
I swore that I could and would make something like it on my own, but gave in and bought TWO for our house.
Then, I went back and bought one more…for one of you!
I know you won’t get it in time for Valentines Day, but this is something I may keep up in my house year round!
And, you can too!
