This Valentines Day I have a daughter in Kindergarten…with 23 Valentines to make and there was no way we were going to make that many cards, plus she has to write all of their names, quite the task for someone who just turned 6. I decided to pass up the store bought ones after seeing this great one from Ellen on The Long Thread that she made with her daughter, you can find it here:
And we changed it a little, I had my older girls design their own, and make 3 or 4 original drawings, I scanned them and printed 6 to a page. Honestly this was probably easier than arguing over My Little Pony or Sponge Bob Squarepants Valentines. We also taped a lollipop to one side for Annabelle’s school and a pencil to Millie’s school because at preschool they don’t allow candy…probably a good call.
