I wasn’t quite sure what to do for Valentine’s Day this year – I was running a little bit behind, and only had a couple weeks to think of something. Keri was really into the loom bands, and came up with the idea to make bracelets for her friends.. I loved the idea! I found the valentine’s day card on Pinterest, and went with it – we made 21 bracelets in one week! We had to order the red and pink bands from eBay b/c at the time, I couldnt find them anywhere locally. (They are everywhere now.. just have no know where to look!). We tagged team doing them, I put the bands on, and she did the actual making of the bracelet. They turned out so cute!
Here is a close up of the valentine:
Now, I wanted to personalize the valentiens to make it extra special, so on the back this is what we did:
All of Keri’s friends loved them! And best of all, they were not candied valentines! They were a practical valentine, hand made, and such a wonderful personalized touch for Keri to give to her friends.
But now.. the valentine day box! Again, short on time, and we made this the day before her valentine day party with her playgroup friends. So, I used last year’s idea, spray painted a box pink, cut a slit, and had Keri decorate it with stickers. This is how it turned out:
Pretty cute! This was a cold valentines day party!! Keri was dressed in long sleeves, but of course she was playing on the playground so was fine.. but the moms were freezing!! Nevertheless, she had a great time and received lots of valentines:
But that wasnt all! The next day was actually Valentine’s Day. Of course I had something special for Keri. Please excuse the pictures, for some reason they turned out blurry.. not sure why! But, she received a teddy bear to decorate, valentines day stickers, chocolates, valentine date notebook, heart pillow, flowers, candied necklaces, and valentine’s day pajamas. She enjoyed her gifts!
And that was it! It was a wonderful valentines day – and lots of fun making these valentines!
