Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope your day is filled with little moments that help you to remember the love of those in your life.

In our house we have been preparing for the great Valentine’s Day exchange of 2013.  This is the first time that we have had three boyz in elementary school at the same time.  That meant three classrooms to make valentines for.

Gabe is in third grade.  We used Smartie Pants printable from iHeartNaptime to make these fish bowl valentine.  After cutting them out and having Gabe write all of the names on them, I put them in these Smartie Pants printable I purchased at the local craft store.  I love the hourglass figure that allowed for a great fit with the fish bowl.  I added three Swedish Fish and they were set to go!

Nate chose these great Smartie Pants printable valentines I found at Tip Junkie.  They did take a bit of assembly, but I love the 3d pants look.  I recommend using Tacky Glue to adhere the pieces together.  It held great and took very little time to set.

DSCN6037Finally I had to make something for Eli’s pre-K class.  We saw several ideas on Pinterest, but when I looked through my Cricut cartridges I found that the Cricut Everyday Cartridge, Create a Critter 2 had all of the elements to make my own!  Just some card stock and I was done.  I found small treat bags at the dollar store and purchased five boxes of Runts there as well.  By separating out the bananas and the strawberries (which I think look like hearts)  I had enough to add a few to each bag for the entire class.

Eli added his writing to the back, which was great because it allowed enough room for his tiny little hands to try and write out all of the names.
