We are 99% done with Valentine's Day cards. Harper needs to put some finishing touches on the cards to her teachers. Then we are officially done, which is good since the party is tomorrow.
I decided to go a different route with the Valentine's for Harper's class. I saw these sweet felt fortune cookies on Martha Stewart's website. Since I have tons of felt, I thought it would be perfect to use up some of my stash. I did a test run using pipe cleaners instead of floral wire and they came together really easily. Harper was excited about them too. I cut out all the circles and pipe cleaner pieces. The kids helped glue the pipe cleaners down the middle. Then I wrote little messages on scrap paper and Harper signed each one. I was very impressed. She signed her name 24 times in one sitting. I kept telling her she could take a break, but she was determined. We stuffed all the fortune cookies with the messages and folded them up.
I wanted to do something very simple for Miller's cards. I knew that his attention span would allow us 15 minutes at the most. So I printed off pictures of dinosaurs and wording that says, "You are dino-mite". I cut them out and had him glue the pieces of paper to card stock. Harper helped by glueing the wording on. We had a small assembly line going.
The cards in the back are for his teachers. I cut out scrap paper and he just glued it to the cardstock.
Today's theme for Theme Thursday is special. Eventhough it is a bit of a stretch, homemade Valentine's qualify as being special in my book.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
