So today the kids and I made Valentine’s Day crafts. I helped Greyson make one for Juan (my husband and his step-dad) and one for his daddy. And I also helped Dominic make one for his daddy too!
Greyson and I got crafty this morning while Dom was taking his morning rest. I had found a cute idea on Pinterest and we just had to try it out! I drew the heart outline and wrote “I LOVE YOU TO PIECES” and who it was from and to, as well as the year at the top right corner. This one he was making for Juan.
Greyson did the rest all by himself (mostly). All I had to do was hand him the sheets of purple, pink, and red paper and the scissors and let him get to work. He cut up little bits of the paper and I helped him make piles of the different colored paper pieces.
Next we worked together on making his daddy a valentine! Note that this was another Pinterest idea I found. I absolutely LOVE Pinterest. Pinterest is the best. Seriously. It’s the bomb.
I cut out a heart and helped Greyson paint his hand and we made his little handprint. We glued the heart onto a piece of red paper. Then I wrote the year in the top right corner and wrote “Dear Daddy, I made this heart just for you. I created it in my own special way. I wanted to say I love you on this Valentine’s Day! Love, Greyson” under his cute little handprint. Greyson got very creative in decorating his daddy’s card!
He did such a good job on his valentines today. He was so proud of his work too! 😁
I helped Dominic make his daddy a valentine after naptime. I wrote the year and beside the heart and his little footprints I wrote for him “Dear Daddy, I love you from the bottom of my heart to the tips of my toes. Love, Dominic”. Dom’s 16 months old. We kept it simple but sweet. 😊
Now I just need to figure out what I’m going to make their daddy/step-daddy/my husband for Valentine’s Day. February 14th also happens to be our first wedding anniversary as well! I have an idea of what I want to make for him in mind at the least….. 💡
