Every where you turn these days there is an advertisement for jewelry from some expensive jeweler somewhere. My question is WHO really can afford to drop a large amount of cash on a necklace shaped in a heart these days? I don't know about you but our family budget just doesn't have that in it for my husband to shower me with those gifts, and my children have riffled through my jewelry box so many times that I'm not sure what's still there at this point and what's made it into a little ballerina jewelry box because it's pretty.
Kids can be like ferrets ya know.
So for Valentines day the project was hand made Valentines for parents, made with Glitter, Construction paper and glue.
I came home from running errands to discover my living room a mess with cut paper everywhere and two of the happiest kids plus a very self satisfied husband. He had directed the children in how to make construction paper valentines, helped little spellers – in fact he turned it into a great way to help reinforce the spelling list for our first grader and used it to teach our preschooler how to spell his name.
Now I have to tell you that this is a Valentines day I'll remember far longer than any other gift I could get.
Did your kids do something special for Valentines day that you will treasure for life too? Share it in your comment!
