Valentines Day Valentines Ideas

16195652_1468401789857296_8030190563454539741_nThese are so much fun to make with the little one. All you need is a few markers, construction paper, glue, ‘eyes’, and scissors. These are all just basically different hearts cut from construction paper and decorated. Your child will love helping you and the end designs can be hung on a wall or given to family or friends for Valentines Day.

Start with the bodies – use a pencil and lightly draw it. Keep adding the pieces using the designs above and don’t forget to embellish.

Milk Jug Snowman Outside Decoration

76431_477678165608782_426290372_nThis is so simple of an idea and you can get your child involved to help get a kick start to the holiday festivities. Thoroughly clean milk/orange juice container by letting soak overnight with water and about two tablespoons of bleach. Rinse and dry. While you are waiting for this use old buttons or paper cutouts for mouth, nose and eyes. Get creative and give the snowman earmuffs, eyeglasses or whatever other creative add-on you can give to provide your snowman with a personality. For the lights: If making three or more like in the picture use a string of lights that is 150 lights. Puncture a hole in the back of the jug and push lights until you have about forty in each jug. This will provide room for the snowman to be placed close but as you desire. You can also use a little sand or some rocks in the jug before you put the lights in them to hold them securely if wind should arise.
