The kids and I had fun coming up with our own creative valentines this year. I am sure there are things out there like this, but we three sat down and came up with it together. Andrew’s was my favorite, because he got a light bulb look when he thought of giving a glow stick and said, you light me up! I loved it and we ran with it. They did everything alone and seemed to really enjoy it. Chloe and I came up with “you blow me away” and added a thing of bubbles on each valentine. It was fun to watch them get creative, like the bubbles and the paper choices.
I had fun making their little snack to take to each of their classmates. I found these mini sand buckets and shovels at Sandy’s Christmas and grabbed a few packages of the valentine candy corn! Chloe helped me make little signs with stickers saying, “We dig you!”
I loved how it turned out, but I mostly LOVED spending time with both of them and being creative together.
My little sweeties picked out heart shirts and enjoyed matching at church on Wednesday Ella’s was a little different, but all the colors coordinated. I love that when it happens (I am sure you’ve figured that much out by now!). Wednesday was what our youth group calls CCCC (counterfeit caring couples contest). It is always tons of fun and I enjoyed heading up the food aspect. We grabbed several bags of chips and dips and I LOVED making tons of chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry cake balls, and my peanut butter pies (mini version). We filled a few jars with other valentine candy too.
Recipe for the peanut butter pie will be coming up sometime soon!
