Have you joined Pinterest yet? If not you really should, its such a great way to catalog all the things you find on the internet and find even more fun stuff, especially for your kiddos. I have found so many things to keep my 3 year old occupied and have also been inspired by new recipes and projects for myself. I want to share a few Valentine’s Day ideas that mainly came from Pinterest.
This week, we worked on a project with our 3 year old. A Valentine’s Day Wreath, it was pretty simple and only took us a few minutes. We purchased some burlap and a foam wreath from our local arts and crafts store, as well as the heart. We already had the ribbon but you could also pick this up at the store while you are purchasing your other supplies.
Our 3 year old painted the heart with her washable kids paints and helped to wrap the burlap and ribbon. The only part she really couldn’t do was use the hot glue gun to secure everything into place. It was really that simple and she is very proud of it.
Another little project I am going to be doing from now until the 14th is using these little mail boxes I picked up at the arts and crafts store, one for each of the kids. I wrote on the side of each one in a paint pen, “Ainsleigh’s Love Notes” on a light purple box and “Nolan’s Love Notes” on a red box. Each morning before I head off to work I am planning to leave them a little love note for the day. To help them with their pre-reading skills I will use pictures and words to leave them with a little note each day .
This craft is all over the web, I even saw it on the Today show, here is my pin on Pinterest, these would make really fun gifts with a custom coloring book or coloring page.
The last craft I want to share are thumbprint bookmarks from Sweet and Lovely Crafts. These are so cute and would be so much better than giving out candy or those little cards from the store that wind up getting tossed. These can be altered depending on the age of your child and can give them an opportunity to be involved with their Valentine’s gift to friends or classmates.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your family.
Perhaps its because my best friend and I had a personalized book when we were kids or because these two little boys are just about the cutest little friends every, but these books were so fun to make. I made two books but switched around the wording for each boy so his book had his name first.
This book was really fun to make. Not only was it about my daughter and some of her favorite friends but the photo shoot involved was a blast.
A wonderful photographer (and friend of mine) came up to Virginia from North Carolina to do this photo shoot, Morgan Henderson of Morgan Henderson Photography. The kids had so much fun playing and they all looked so cute. What a fun way to have some memories and great pictures. Most of the parents used the photos as their child’s two year photos since two year olds and photo studios don’t mix too well.
Do you have photos of your child’s play group. If you are interested in multiple books with the same design discounts are available.
Swimming lessons were a big hit in our little baby play group and we wanted to make a book for our daughter and her little friends to remember it by but also to remember the fun song they got to swim to in the pool.
