Happy Valentine’s Day! My kids are incredibly excited about this holiday, and it’s been fun celebrating with them by making some cute Valentine’s Day kids crafts – from making valentines to talking about things we like about friends and family members. Emma brought this cute heart guy home from school!
Emma also made a heart pillow for my sister K, who turned 17 yesterday! I helped sew the pillow (I used my pinking sheers to trim the seam for nice smooth curves this time), she stuffed it, I stitched it shut, then she drew the face on with Sharpie pens. I love that she drew a face with the tongue sticking out – just like her other heart guy at the top of this post. K is the one who taught her to draw faces like that! I’m pretty sure it’s the first time K has received a heart-shaped gift, even with a birthday so close to Valentine’s Day, and I was so pleased to find something Emma would enjoy making that could double as a fun teenager gift! K has been a great friend to my kids, and they all adore her. We mailed it off last week, and K loves it! =)
We’re making today Daddy Appreciation Day – with notes to Mike around the house! What are you doing to celebrate?
