Easy Valentine's for School.

For all the mom's who'll be searching for and/or making Valentine's
for their child's class this weekend - I thought I'd lend some help. 
I don't like the cheesy cheapy Valentine's sold in stores.
 Believe me, in desperate moments I've bought them.
But it bugged me because I knew I could do better and get my kid more involved then just writing their name. 

This year, here's what I did. 
 I searched online for some decent Valentine printables.  This is what I found that I liked:

Love Birds:

Love Maze:

Great site with printable pages:

I picked the love birds coloring page & printed 30 sheets on colored paper.
 I bought 2 bags of Hershey's Kisses. 
   I had the stickers already and this was a great way to use them up! 
Any zip-loc baggies will do.

 To get my 8yr old daughter up to the task,
I arranged a table ensemble of everything so she'd feel super special.
I had her write her name on all the sheets, then fold each one. 
 She put the folded sheet into a baggie then added 3 kisses. 
 She totally dug doing this. 

I hope this gave you an idea or two. 
And to warm your heart, here's an anecdote.
This morning dropping her off at school, Moni looked up at the car thermostat and said;

"Look Mama, it's minus 11!"

True story....brrrrrrrr.  I let the car warm up for 20 minutes.
 Again, I moved away from Southern California why??

xo Jeanne.
