Preschool Valentines

It's that time of year again! Valentine's Day is almost here - can't you just feel the love in the air {or is that just commercialization in the stores...lol}?

Anyway, when I was growing up we had to constantly remind my mom to take us to the store to pick out those boxed Valentine cards. You know the ones - a piece of 2x3 paper with your favorite cartoon character and a cutesy quote {"Would you be my Valentine?"} written on them. Life was simple then.

My obession with crafting won't let me walk into my neighborhood Walgreens and pick those up for the little prince - what's unique about that{speaks the voice in my head}? So I make something - simple of course - but handmade for him to share with his class.

This year we focused on his love of all things cars. I found a great idea on Pinterest and rolled with it {pun intended}. Check it out....

Using Picnik, I created the Valentine bag topper

The little prince picked out the cars he liked from Party City

I bought some cello bags and heart shaped lollipops and here is what he'll take to school.

I love making special days extra special. I love you my sweet boy!
