Valentine's Day Cards

In trying to decide what to do for Valentine's Day this year, I looked at a number of options.  I had several ideas pinned, including ones using swedish fish, these cute happy hearts offering candy, rice krispie hearts, pictures of your child offering lollipops, and these really sweet painted cards.  I was leaning towards that last idea, but then I was reminded that Aaron had ideas of his own!

He suggested that I just give him blank paper and envelopes so that he could create valentines for each person in his class.  I hesitated for a second, only because it sounded like a lot of work; but we still have over two weeks, and it's a great indoor activity.  He's been knocking out a couple every night, so he will be done in plenty of time.  I love watching and listening as he decides how to personalize each card for his friends.  "Kaitlyn's has to have lots of rainbows, because she loves rainbows!  I'm going to put some matchbox car stickers on Matthew's, because he loves cars.  Emma is going to get extra glitter sparkly hearts and stars, because she loves anything with sparkles."  And the list goes on...

So that's what we're doing.  I got a set of blank envelopes, and he's hand-making each card.  He is even decorating the front of every envelope!  He also chose the goody to put inside - red heart lollipops.  I love the thought he is putting into these, and he's having a lot of fun doing it!
