Most years for Valentine's Day, my kids want to go to the store and pick out which ones they want to give their friends at school. This year however, they all wanted ones that I couldn't find...anywhere! So we looked online and found some that they were each okay with.
Berkeley had four days where she was doing valentine exchanges- yes four! The first one we skipped out on, but the other three she really wanted to bring something.
For school, we went with some crazy straws. I got them in the party favor section at Walmart, but saw some after at Target that were a little shorter and would have fit better in the bags. The straws were cheap, and so were the bags. I used pretzel bags from Wilton that I found in the cake decorating section.
I printed some tags and just stapled them on.
We went to our annual Cafe Rio Valentine's party with our playgroup, which was awesome! Tanner's contribution was little cups of fishy crackers. I thought the little containers were a perfect size for a snack.
Berkeley brought skittles butterflies for playgroup. We didn't have time to finish them. They were supposed to have eyes and cute paper on the bodies too. Oh well...
Stephen wanted Pokemon valentines, but we couldn't find any, so we made some little ones. He put them in bags with hearts and a Pokemon card.
Brady liked some whistle valentines we saw online, but these horns were too cute to pass up. He has a really small kindergarten class, there are only 15 kids, so we could do a little more for his valentines since I didn't have to make as many.
We still have to make some for Berkeley's dance class, but other than that, I think we are finally done!
Tuesday we had a recognition night for the Activity Day girls at church. I made 72 cupcakes, and forgot to take pictures before they were all eaten. I managed to salvage a few to bring home, and this was the only one that made it long enough to take a picture. There were six different kinds: lemon poppy seed with blueberry yogurt frosting, vanilla with vanilla frosting, chocolate with cookies and cream oreo frosting, chocolate with caramel toffee frosting with almonds, triple chocolate, and this one was chocolate with dark cherry frosting. It was a good night, the girls did a great job! They all showed their talents and crafts that they have made.
