♥♥♥We Love Valentines Day ♥♥♥

I adore pink and red and white and hearts and things that are pretty! I love Valentines Day! So I have been on the lookout for ideas for the kids school valentines and for a fun treat for Teagen's class(more on that one later) A note came home from Summer's teacher that the students were to create a card box at home. The requirements were that it had to be "Valentines colors", fit in their desks, and NOT have anything suggestive or crude on them(how said that it even has to be mentioned) We found the idea for this one in Family Fun Magazine. Broke into the scrapbook stash and here's what we created-
(its a dog, not a rabid bunny;)) Cards go in the mouth. I think the one in Family Fun was a cat. But Summer is a dog person.
And here are her Valentines. They are from Michael's. We had some leftover goodie bags and I bought pencils on clearance last year. Add a sucker, staple together.
Simple and cute!

For Teagen I bought a case of crayons in Aug when Walmart has them for 15 cents a box. Also at Michael's I got her sticker Valentines( same brand as Summer's) that were perfect for this. wrap a ribbon around each box, slap the sticker on and thats it! Cute!!♥♥♥

You are gonna love my treat idea for Teagen's class. I gotta get the supplies today!
