After we made {these} sweet valentine treats for her classmates, I realized Grace needed to bring something that could fit in their valentine mailboxes! No biggie - we used the mason jar valentines as party favors for their class party and then got to working on some smaller valentines to go in the cute mailboxes.Part of their week's unit last week was on the postal service and addressing envelopes, so they had to practice writing their return address (their name) and the delivery address (their friend's name) on the envelope or on the back of the valentine, in the right spot.As you can see we made pink ones for the girls, blue ones for the boys, and even red ones for the teachers! The teachers also got bubble bath with theirs for a fun treat. I hot glued the bubbles to the cardstock, poked tiny holes with a toothpick, and tied with twine. As far as the different color printables, I just tweaked the template in Picasa before printing. So for just $2 (12 bubbles, bought at Target in a little red mesh bag from the valentine party favors aisle) to $4 (24 bubbles), you can have really cute valentines for a full class of littles!Mimi was a lifesaver yesterday. Not only did I come down with laryngitis, but also pInK eYE!!!!! This was my first time to have pink eye as an adult. No.fun.at.all. especially when you wear contacts and don't have a good spare pair of eyeglasses. Yikes! Guess my eyes wanted to be in the valentine mood too...THANK YOU MIMI for taking Grace to Reese's birthday party and for picking up dinner for the littles!!!Off to tackle the disaster that is our play area after two days of wild littles and no one picking up...
