Valentine's For Kindergartner's...

Tomorrow is VALENTINE'S DAY!!! YAY!!! I love Valentine's Day! What's wrong with a day devoted to celebrating the people you love?! :) Just wanted to share a few things that we did for my daughter's Kindergarten class. First up is her teacher's Valentine. When I saw the teacher stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog I knew that what I was going to do for her teacher! So here is what we did...Wrapped up the stamp set, a few ink pads, and one of the Valentine's Kylie gave to her class (pictures of that below) with some FABULOUS ribbon and added a SUPER fun Valentine tag. (Up close pictures of that below as well) When I am short on time, I LOVE wrapping a gift with some ribbon and a tag. And although I have a few different kinds of gifts I had to do for her class, I did the same tag for all of them. Saves time but still shows the receiver of the gift that you appreciate them so much that you took the time to make a little something handmade for them.

Here is what we are doing for all her classmates. I LOVE these Valentine's boxes. I bought them whenever they were in the mini catalog and STILL have some to use. But...they are on the CLEARANCE RACK now so you could get them so much cheaper. Here is what they look like...


These cute little boxes that are SO EASY to put together. We gave pink to the girls and blue to the boys. But you could pick just one color and go with that. :) Then in the box...

A package of candy and a little game. I LOVE the maze games in the current mini catalog. Seriously...HOW CUTE and fun!! For ANY age!!!! Here they are up-close...This was SO EASY to do! I just stamped the heart image in Real Red ink and punched out with the 2 1/2" Circle punch. Then took out the back insert and added this one to the game. SO EASY and so much fun! Then we stamped on the back as well. This is what we did...

My daughter got a bit sloppy with her writing cause she was TIRED OF WRITING (that's what she said in her dramatic voice) after we made 20 of these and 20 boxes. She wrote both their name and her name on both. So I let the handwriting slide and just made sure she got them done. :) But we had fun together in my stamp room. The best thing...as we are working together...my sweet daughter says, "I love crafting with you in your stamp room, Mommy." There is nothing better! I just hope she always wants to craft with me! Or at least spend time with me! :)

This next gift I made quite a few of. I am the Room Mom for my daughter's class and so I am in charge of the party tomorrow. I wanted to make sure I had a thank you gift for the mom's helping me tomorrow. So this is what they will get. I also needed something for my daughter's bus drivers. (She has 2 of them.) And then of course my friend that is watching my baby. So this is what they will get as well...
I could of just given them the candy bars because who doesn't appreciate chocolate?! But again...how much MORE fun is it to get chocolate with some ribbon and a cute tag on it?! I hope they feel loved and appreciate cause they are!!! I may make some more of these for my neighbors. They were fun and quick to do! Here are some more pics...


Just wanted to share a few Valentine's treats for you! I know it's late...but maybe it will help you with your plans! :) Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!
