Valentines for the Classroom
We did it! My granddaughter and I made all 22 valentines last night--I loved how we worked together--she stuck with it and wrote every single message on the pink hearts and wrote her name on the backs. She helped fold the doilies, stuffed them with the pink heart and a candy. Then we both sewed them closed with a length of red yarn.
While making these, she said how much she liked them, but then later said she's going to be embarrassed by these, because all the other kids will have the great little store bought ones with sparkles and colors.
I think homemade things are special, but that might not be the way of it for most people?--I forget that, and then I think I'm causing my granddaughter more embarrassment!--but she's right there beside me, making these and having fun--I don't think these homemade valentines will traumatize her too much?--geez!
