Almost forgot to post about what we made for Valentine’s Day! The little guy was in a kids’ made Valentine swap and made these super sweet valentines:
In exchange, he received valentines from five different kids from various parts of the country (all valentines were made with natural materials).
He also made a few little gifts, too. The heart hanging decorations were made from paper clay, using cookie cutters for the outside heart and star shapes, rubber stamps to create an image, then watercolors to add color.
For me, he made this super sweet Valentine of “footprints making a heart in the snow.” We read the book Snowy Valentine and he was apparently quite taken with the ending where the bunny creates a heart shape in the snow as he is walking to find the perfect Valentine.
To finish off our Valentine crafts, we made a heart shaped beeswax candle and ornament.
It was all very lovely!
