A fun little Valentine's project

Monday nights at our house we have a family night with a little lesson, activity, and a treat. The lessons are always as short as the attention spans around here. Last night we talked about how families need to work together. [This is a concept that we seem to discuss A. LOT.]

So anyway, here is a fun, easy project we did afterward. I'd done this about 6 years ago when my daughter was in a pre-school co-op and I was amazed how easy it was and how well it turned out: wax-paper hearts made with crayon shavings. Our old ones were looking a bit beat-up, so it was time to make some new ones. Martha Stewart's image is much prettier than mine. (Of course.) And her instructions are also much better than mine would be as well.
I think I'm going to make some more without my little 'helpers.'

  3. So cute. You are a good mom. I will say I was better about teaching my kids when they were your age. I'd rather have fun cutting up stuff with little kids than dealing with adult issues that my kids want help with now. Enjoy Amy. Seriously Enjoy. You are living the good old days.

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam.
