First, a SUPER easy way to make a heart-shaped stamp (from Hands on as We Grow)
|We took an empty paper towel roll and pinched the ends into a heart shape. Dip in paint and stamp away!|
|A very fun way to make cards for friends!|
|Don't forget to smush the paint around a little too.|
For our "make-believe" Valentine play, we used an old tissue box (we certainly had plenty around after this sick week), covered it with butcher paper, and decorated it to look like a mailbox.
|"Bear Mail" box|
|We used some old Valentines (so glad I cleaned out my school stuff) and colored on them, then put them in the mailbox.|
|We took them out, and put them in again. A popular activity.|
|It was also fun to stuff all of the crayons into the mailbox. Maybe Grammy would like to get a bunch of broken Crayolas in the mail?|
Even though it was a tough week with being sick and cranky and stuck inside, these little things have given us some bright spots! Looking forward to Camp for Babies tomorrow: Valentines Fun!
