St. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we are still busy making Valentines at our house. My daughter and I came up with these cute mustache straw Valentines for her to give out to her classmates. This is a great craft for Second and Third graders to make on their own! Read on […]
You’ve seen those chunky bead necklaces that cutie-patootie little girls are wearing in sweet photos? Well this post is not so much of a how to as a where to buy these necklace kits and assemble them yourself! I can no longer keep this awesome source to myself!
Do you make your own Valentines? Do you let your kids help? This year my kids are really putting the pressure on, they each have something different they want to make. The bubble Valentines are for my preschooler. He is very excited to be able to take Valentines to school for his friends. These Valentine […]
Okay, I know I am getting carried away with this Angry Bird stuff. But these are actually from Valentine’s Day. Remember those warm fuzzy friend Valentines my daughter made?
