This Year's Valentines

 
 
Thought I would quickly pop in to show you guys the Valentines the girls will be sharing with their friends on Thursday.  My goal for Valentines is not to spend a ton of time on them, but to make something that they (or at least Ellie) can help with and be excited about taking in.  I think these fit the bill.

You've probably seen the one on the left on the web/pinterest already, but since Ellie's Kindergarten class is the Goldfish, it just didn't seem right not to make those.

To create the fishbowl, I used the free printable found here, and then added some text in Powerpoint.  I cut them out, and Ellie colored them.  She also addressed them on the backside.  The little bags I found at Tuesday Morning, and I added just a bit of twine to seal it off.

The valentine on the right is for Carina's class.  Carina is always wanting to glue things, so I thought it would be a great idea for her friends.  I created them in Powerpoint, and the JPEG version is below if you want to use it.  The glue stick is held on with a glue dot, and I added some twine that is strung through the back of the valentine just for show.



Hope that your Valentine preparations are going smoothly!
