School Valentines


Thanks to Pinterest I found some really great ideas for the kiddos' Valentines this year. For the ones above we attempted pencils instead, because I hate to give out candy (yes. I'm THAT mom), but they just weren't working :(
We were almost out of our prefered brand (Yummy Earth) of all natural lollipops with no dye or HFCS and made with natural juice, so a quick trip to the local mini-mart/gas station produced Tootsie Pops!


These fun love bug jar Valentines are for my 7 year old who loves insects as much as I do!
We stamped a canning jar onto white cardstock, then scanned it and enlarged it on our computer to print out the perfect size jars for the insects we purchased (Safari Ltd. Toob insects). They are held in place with a large glue dot.

Thanks for stopping by today,
*mwah*

Love them both! Your son has such a bright smile, and the bug on the canning jar is possibly the cutest valentine I've seen this year :)
