Our dining table has been valentine making central for the past several weeks. I knew from last year that if we wanted to hand make all of our valentines, we needed to start early. Since the lists came home from school, each night we have made a few.
We kept is simple. Cut hearts out of paper, glued to the front of card stock and then turned them into different animals, robots, people with pencil sketches. And whatever we thought the recipient would enjoy.
Zane went for crazy half man, half animal characters. Nnadozi is getting "dangerous duck man".
Ian did a sweet drawing of a ballerina in fifth position for Ella. Zane says Ella is Ian's girlfriend. I love how he drew the ballerina's ////hair.
And then this afternoon, there was a last minute request for a mail bag to aid in delivery of the valentines. *not to girly and no pink, please* I made Wyatt a similar style bag to carry the twelve matchbox cars he insists on hauling all over the house. This way he can free his hands to hold on to important things like stair railings. I think it works quite well for mail too.
Do you all remember Mr. Mc Feely of Mr. Roger's neighborhood? His voice has been playing in my head all day saying "speedy delivery" over and over. So speedy delivery to you!
