Better Late Than Never

The last two weeks have had me frazzled! Working on a minor renovation, husband's birthday, son's birthday and party, add in Valentine's Day, and I am wooped. I did manage to make my son's Valentine's for his class party which made him very happy. He actually wanted to give them to his classmates before the class party as a birthday "give-away". He was a little disappointed when I told him he'd have to wait for the 14th.

I got inspired via Pinterest, this link takes you to my "Fun for Kids" board, which shows you the original idea. I decided that Kindergarten and 5 to 6 year olds do not need love sayings and hearts on EVERYTHING, so I purchased a star shaped punch to make mine. Also, not everyone appreciates pink, in fact, my son's favorite color is blue. I gathered several different bright colors of paint chips from the home store and began crafting. To make it more appropriate for a Valentine, I added the lollipops to each of them and my son signed his name to the backs.

These bookmarks turned out cute and they were so easy to make. A plus for this busy working mommy!
