Workshop of Love

We had our Valentine workshop last weekend because of the events of this one. The kids are starting to not want to do Valentines (L & D anyway), but I was determined to find something that was 'cool' enough for even a Junior High boy and High School girl. We can't just let our friends go loveless on the day of love, for heaven's sake! So, here's what we came up with, and a huge acknowledgment and thank you to Family Fun magazine, as always.

The kids hard at work: (It's a lot easier to make a list of 40 friends than it is to actually make 40 Valentines) This took most of the day on Saturday.


Lyndsay and her "Rock Candy" ipods. (Boxes of conversation hearts wrapped in pink paper, with mini peanut butter cup earpieces.)


Dylan and his "Valentines are for Dum-Dums"



Aiden tells his friends, "You're all WRITE".


Happy Valentine's Day! Be a sweetheart!

How cute! I'm laughing over Dylan's "Valentines are for Dum Dums" That's such a boy thing!

I made valentines with just my youngest this year--the other kids' classes are too old for them. We did an oldie but a goodie--a design I got from Family Fun nearly 10 years ago!

These are awesome ideas. Even the dum-dum one is cute and perfect for a boy who's "too old" for Valentine's Day!!
