making valentines


At school there is always this rule: If you bring in something for one kid you must bring in something for everyone. This is especially important on Valentine's Day. In past years I have felt badly when the kids came home with a bag full of Valentine's from their classmates and I realized we had skipped the whole thing -- as a result, this year we decided to start early and make some simple cards of our own. A stack of colorful index cards, some tape, and some hole punches and rubber stamps made mass production quite easy. I have a few Martha Stewart punches that I bought at Michael's that are especially fun and "fancy" as well as a glue stamp pad that makes glitter extra special too. We are not finished yet, but at least we are off to a good start!
