i’ve been so focused on my valentine’s date with my husband (our first valentine’s day with no kids!) that i almost totally forgot about the kids. i ran to the dollar store and grabbed some cute animal ones for my little guy and some thor ones for my superhero stepson. my little peanut gets to have all his “firsts” at school this year … which i think i’m way more excited about than he will ever be. he’s at a wonderful christian daycare, so i wanted to do something very special for his fantastic teachers as well, so i searched pinterest and used [this] craft as a guide for his teachers.
here’s what you’ll need.
pink & red construction paper
bottle of hand soap
step one. cut the paper.
don’t be deceived by the tiny little hand … it was more like a wrestling match with my (almost) 9 month old to trace his little hand out.
step two. add a heart.
glue or tape on the hand. make sure it’s upside down.
step three. “you are hands down the best teacher!”
write it on and sign your name.
step four. tie it on the soap.
and complete! cute valentine’s gift for your little ones teachers!
next week, i’ll share what i did for my husband for valentine’s day. i was “in charge” of planning it this year … let’s just say it involves a scavenger hunt to find his favorite things :)
enjoy blessing others with LOVE this valentine’s day!
