Here are a few fun things in the works for tomorrow....I hope to post some pics of my students' valentine crafts and what not, after our party.
Look who's been baking!! ;-) Can't wait to enjoy these with my kiddos!
Just some creative Valentine ideas, stolen borrowed, off some fabulous blogs. My Mother often says, I would gift the farm if I had one. I love giving gifts...so here are a few things I've created to pass along to friends and students at school. Enjoy~
I wanted to do something unique for my students this year, as opposed to the traditional valentine cards. And when I began searching the internet, I ran across these crayon hearts. I thought the idea was great because it allowed me to recycle the MILLIONS of used/broken crayons I have stashed in my classroom. I thought sticking my hearts in a cello bag, adding some ribbon, and a little tag (purchased on etsy) was a quick fix. You can find instructions for these hearts at In the Pink! Please note: if you do not use a silicone pan (which I didn't), spray your pan with non stick cooking spray before dropping your crayon pieces in to melt)
I LOVE this idea. I snagged the chocolate coins out of the $1 bin at Target. You can find more information about this cute valentine here: Colorful Creative Ideas! Don't forget to pick up some extra coins for St. Patrick's Day. We always seem to have a sneaky leprechaun who leaves us his Pot of Gold each year. ;-)
These little guys were sooo easy to make. I passed them out to my kiddos I teach in Sunday School, this morning, and they loved them! I ran my copies off on heavy pink card stock...cut and hole punched. Grab the FREE printable here: What the Teacher Wants!
What teacher, friend, girly girl..doesn't love a little lotion that fits in a purse? I ran off some "Love Potion #9" labels...stuck them on individual bottles of lotion and added some V Day ribbon I picked up at Michael's for next to nothing! Nothing inspired here....just something I conjured up in my mind! Great gift...and super simple.
These may be my absolute favorite. I traced my students' hands last week, cut them out, and curled their two middle fingers around pencils. A little two sided tape and a sucker is all you need. This idea and so many others came from The First Grade Parade.
