Here is the kids' Valentine's gift to their dad. We saw a candy bouquet at the supermarket for $20 and decided to make our own. We bought the candy for $8 and had the rest of the supplies at home. The kids loved making it. (The tie-dye shirts were made at a birthday party and are worn constantly.)
Sophia discovered the joys of Pez this year.
Writing Valentine's cards is such a great quiet time activity ... and good handwriting practice too!
We had fun scanning the internet to get ideas for Valentine's boxes. Sophia of course, let me pick and I thought this iPod box idea was too cute!
Clara loved the penguin.
Meredith had all her own ideas and didn't want to copy anyone else's. She was very particular, even telling me exactly what type of dogs to print off the internet. :)
I snapped a picture of Clara, walking back to class, on the day of their Valentine's party. She has grown and matured so much this year, being in a class one day a week. To put it bluntly, she has had to learn to be more diplomatic! Ha!
