Valentine's Day parties have long been a favorite celebration in schools all across the country, with the theme focusing far more heavily on friendship and candy than on love. Most schoolkids bring valentines to school for this party, and the valentines can run the gamut from paper cards to homemade goodies. Almost every Valentine that we got as kids had one of those little conversation hearts included - which you either LOVED or HATED. Personally... I loved the corny messages more than the taste.
Well, the time has come where Thomas has to bring in Valentine's Day Cards to his class party. Truthfully, I've never been a fan of this (even when I was younger), but I guess I need to put on my big girl Mama panties and just suck it up for Thomas' sake. The problem is I just don't want to do the cheap little rip-apart V-day cards that are stuffed in those even cheaper white envelopes. I'm thinking, instead, that I will make a little craft fun at home and make some home-made cards with Thomas for his party. Maybe something simple like this?
If anyone out there has some better, more creative... but just as simple... let me know.
But to kick it up a notch... I think we might also try this fun treat for Valentine's Day. Yummy!
