It’s very Valentine-y around here. Tomorrow Norah, Harriet, and I are having a Mother-Daughter Valentine’s Tea for some friends, so we’ve been busy baking, decorating, and planning. It’s nice to have a little something to look forward to in February.
I’m not sure when or where I first saw this idea, it isn’t my own, but it seemed perfect for my little painter. One bends a toilet paper roll into a heart shape and stamps away.
She loved it and went on to create a masterpiece for The Gallery.
Valentines were needed because our activity at the tea will be making Valentine’s “post-boxes”. The girls (with their moms) will each decorate a tissue box collage-style with pink and red papers and craft supplies. After tea, the girls will go around and “post” valentines to one another in the boxes.
I’ve strung them with ribbons so they can be carried home, full of Valentine delights.
