The weather was more par for the season this weekend, so we stayed in and made Valentines. Aiden chose to make woven Danish hearts, something that started slower than we anticipated. Aiden is still working on weaving his hearts, which we will put a nice note inside, or a small trinket of some sort. I think he caught on to the weaving process quicker than I did. For Søren, I had some wooden hearts left over from a failed Christmas project so he painted them and I made them into necklaces. Søren’s just need a card to attach them to so he can pass them out. He’s very proud of his work and has been wearing his necklace for the last few days. Taking it off for nap time or bed has become a war in itself.
Did you make or buy your Valentine’s as a child? If you have children, do you make or buy theirs?
