Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day Thumbprint Sign

20160116_193701 logoValentine’s Day and crafts are always on our minds this time of year with my children. As I was cleaning off our workbench, I saw a slab of wood that was leftover from a previous project. I quickly drilled a hole in the top of it and brought it inside for my children to paint. My youngest wanted to help with this project so this became his craft. The wood goes with our decor and it looks great for the upcoming holiday. Follow the step by step instructions HERE to see how we made this sign. Pictures for each steps are also included. Remember to have fun and enjoy the time you spend with your child when making this together.

I volunteered to send in the napkins for my daughter’s Valentine’s Day party at school. I seem to always volunteer for napkins. Maybe because it’s easy. Maybe because it doesn’t cost much. Maybe because it doesn’t take too much time to make. Mostly, I think, it’s because I want the challenge to see how I can make it more fun than sending in a pack of napkins. This is the 4th time I volunteered for napkins and I was almost at a loss of what to do. Then, just 10 seconds into the dollar store, my eyes focused on the pipe cleaners.
