Wordless Wednesday - Valentines and more valentines




We decided to go all out with the school valentines and made special picture book themed Olivia the Pig heart pocket valentines. My daughter wrote out by hand all of her classmates names. And I bought candy, put some in the pockets and taped the cards shut. (Last year for preschool I didn't send candy...I didn't understand the new protocol. No one gave out candy when I was little, just valentines. Times change, apparently.)

Directions for the pocket valentines here: http://www.brimfulcuriosities.com/2010/02/quarter-fold-heart-pocket-valentines.html
The Olivia printable is from the Nick Jr. website: http://www.nickjr.com/printables/olivia-valentine-stickers.jhtml



We made handprint valentines for the grandparents after I saw them shown on Silly Eagle Books. We also made one for my daughter's teacher and wrote, "You're Hands Down the Best Teacher Around!"

Yes, we love crafting valentines!

What a cute idea! We are working on ours as well. My daughter (3) wants to fill them out, so we are doing a few each day, hopefully she will be done by Friday.

Way cute! All these fabulous Valentine posts are making me realize how painfully behind I am on this project...we haven't even thought about it at our house and parties are on Friday!

Those are great ideas! I miss those days of doing Valentines. My son is in his first year of middle school and they don't do that anymore.

What an awesome idea! My oldest sons are so not in to making their Valentine's anymore, but the wee one and I may have a crack at that for Grandma! Thanks for sharing! Happy WW!

PS I used Picnik for my photo! Love it!

Those are adorable! I'm so sad the school I work for doesn't allow me to "do" Valentines with my 3K class.
