Valentines Day prep

The kids and I have been getting ready for Valentine's Day. Which is not only a big deal in our family but is also a pretty big deal at school. Every year we make Valentines for their classmates and teachers and a Valentine box for them to collect their love notes and tokens in. We used boxes of various sizes, construction paper, card stock, the Cricut Expressions2 machine, various knick knack pieces and a hot glue gun to create the Valentines boxes.

Our Kindergardener wanted a Monster box.

Our second grader wanted a puppy box. 

Here's her "Val-mation".

And our fourth grader wanted an Owl Valentine box. 

She even came up with some cute owl themed sayings for her Valentines, like "You're Owl-some" and "Owl be your Valentine". 

Now if I could shake this flu enough to finish them and the thousand other things on my to-do-list. Thanks for reading and feel free to comment below.
