Valentine's Day is nearly upon us. Every year, my girls go nuts painting and primping and cutting and pasting and glittering their Valentine's Boxes. Every year, my boys moan.
I found this very boy-ish valentine from Family Fun for my 6 year old to make for his class. He was very excited to make them, and is now excited to give them. They are far from the norm of sticky sweet kissy and huggy valentines!
rubber bands, life savers mints, Smartie's and some stick gum.
I wrapped my gum in brown paper that I had stamped with hearts (note that I did the stamping with hearts...my son could have cared less).
Take the rubber bands, string 2 lifesavers through the holes and then slide either end of the rubber band over the sticks of gum. Then slide a Smartie through the middle of the two lifesavers.
It's SO easy, and so sweet!
