Our Valentines Day 2014

Another year and another holiday as come and gone! This year is flying by and it is hard for this mom to keep up. But, is all very special to my 1st grader so of course we have to go all out. 😀 Well, as “all out” as I can manage. This year, it’s a little harder because my youngest son’s birthday is on the 12th and we usually have his party the weekend before Valentines Day, that way we have the weekend to celebrate with him and he doesn’t have to share his day. However, this year, due to some scheduling issues, we had to wait and do it on the same weekend. So, now not only am I planning a party for his great big 5th birthday, I am having to make class valentines, Valentines box, stuff for 1st grade party, and teacher gifts. 

 

So for this year I had to plan, plan, plan and plan ahead. I came across these super cute Valentines for Boys on Pinterest and just had to make them for Braden.

I ran across these Dino Erasers in the Valentines section at Target for a $1.00 for a bag of 8 Dinos. 

 

Downloaded the awesome file from Sweet C’s Designs

 

Printed out the image, punched holes and added the dinos! 

 

 

I added his name and they came out perfect!!! He loved them and I know his class will too! 

 

We also had to decorate a box to put the Valentines in. Seems easy enough. Except when they ask you to make it look like a specific Skylander Swap Force Character. Well, not such an easy task but I think we made it work.

 

 

And finally, a teacher gift! Could not forget his teacher! I had an idea of what I wanted to do. I went to Lauren McKinsey and downloaded her super cute Valentines tag and attached it to a box of triple fudge brownies and some goodies.
