With all the excitement, fuss and waiting out the aftermath of the snow, it has been hard to think of much else around here. School has been called again on this Tuesday. Time to get creative with something!
Fortunately, I had shopped in Michaels a few weeks ago and stopped at their Valentine's display. With such a large class of friends to send Valentine's cards, RJ2 could stand to start making hers early.
[I am a fan of these new foam kits that they have created for class projects and such. However, I'm not ecstatic about the pricing! I went with a lower-priced base kit and scoured their "a la carte" foam/felt sticker wall for appropriate accoutrements.]
RJ2 is not a big fan of writing, so addressing cards would not go over well. Peel-and-stick is definitely more her speed. And, I have to say, she had amazing patience with these.
They were not easy to peel!
This one became a puppet for a little while.
She kept at it and finished more than half of the girls' cards. (Mom still needs to buy some candy hearts to really call them done.)
The boys' cards are still to come. And what boy won't love a lily pad heart with a froggie!? I'm sure we can find some kind of lizardy, buggy candy to go with these, too.
With a couple sick days coughing, "professional development" closings of the school and the snow days, RJ2 hasn't been in Kindergarten for almost a week. Not sure exactly what her teacher has in mind for celebrating Valentine's Day. But, at least RJ2 will have some cute cards ready for her friends. More cards today!
Will you be my Valentine?
