Pinterest to the rescue!
I browsed for a whopping like 4 1/2 seconds and found this awesome tutorial on how to make crepe paper roses and thought, "Hey, I can do that." So we gave it a try. We glued the roses on a three inch Styrofoam ball and this is what we ended up with. I think they are fun!
They were so much fun in fact that we later cut out some big hearts and made a really cute door hanger for our front door.
It was loads of fun to see what was important to the kids. Almost all of them chose to include family on their hearts (whew, I guess we did do something right somewhere along the way) but the other things they included ranged from books to food to friends and sports. It was insightful.
What a great way to prep for a very kissable holiday. We'll have to see if we can manage to add to our festive decor before the big day arrives.
Also, here are our finished Valentine's boxes for school (we are on year round school so the k-6 grade kids have their parties today since they go off track after today).
|Ok, when I suggested this to the boys I didn't really imagine bloody, blackened teeth and bloodshot eyes, but I guess that's just boys.|
|Bryce decided to make an arcade game sort of box and Aubrey went for a mailbox theme.|
