Valentines Day

This is one of my favorite times of the year, when we show expressions of love (and do lots of crafts and baking YAY!!!!!!)

This year we made Valentine stensils using heart shaped doilies. I have to say, that I was disappointed by the selection of Valentines crafts on the internet, although these sites were pretty good: marthastewart.com and familyfun I noticed the doilies at Michaels and thought they would make a unique template. I bought them (using my 40% off coupon of course!) To make them, girls placed the doilie on the card and covered it with paint. Then we added glitter. We experimented to see how to make the clearest print. Megan is taking hers to her preschool and we’ll give the rest to family and neighbourhood friends.

We are making a tradition of doing a “Valentines Delivery” every year, sort of like trick or treating, but this time it’s giving away treats! This year we made and decorated mini cupcakes with white icing.
