we are officially finished with making valentines this year. slade finished his up late yesterday afternoon. he had used this idea before while in preschool, however, it's a different school and different classmates, so i went along with it. (added bonus, we had the chocolate race cars already on hand). this year though, slade did most of the work himself. he even had the idea to create one for a girl and another for a boy.
as for elle, i saw this idea on babble and thought it was the perfect alternative to sweets and rather inexpensive. also, it can be given to either a boy or a girl. elle was sure she would be handing out the best valentine in her kindergarten class.
