Little Pumpkin's preschool class had a Valentine party this week. The kids were allowed to exchange Valentines at school so their homework on Monday was to make a Valentine box. I asked her how she wanted to decorate her box and she was very quick and decisive with her response...a birdhouse.
So, a birdhouse it is...
We started with two boxes, a lightbulb box and a small Amazon delivery box...
I loved listening to her talk through how we could turn the rectangle box into a birdhouse. She had mad reasoning skills :o)
Next, we traced the shape of the house on the scrapbook paper...
Next, modge podge...just saying modge podge makes me happy :o)
I then realized I forgot to cut a hole for the bird! Ooops! I used the mouth of a glass to draw he circle...
Probably shouldn't have used my kitchen knife to cup the cardboard...
Yay...a hole for the bird (and more importantly for the Valentine cards!)...
We have a roof! The hot glue gun is a genious invention.
Little Pumpkin has been wanting to use these red balls on something for quite a while...perfect for the birdhouse!
She then decided to write the names of her Valentines on "shingles"
Using the cricut to make a bird...and a worm because "the bird needs a friend"
My favorite part...the shingles :o)
Time to make Valentine treats!
She absolutely LOVED writing nametags for her friends and checking their names off the list...all her idea :o)
Ready to go!
Next up...Sweet Pea!
She is so stinkin' cute!
I made superhero Valentines for Baby Boy's friends...
Found the idea here...and there is a FREE printable!
The kids were SUPER excited to take their Valentines to school this week!
I am not sure if I have mentioned this or not, but Little Pumpkin is Lactose intolerant. It is a recent discovery, but something that has bothered her for years. Anyways, her class had an ice cream party for Valentines. I asked her if she wanted me to bring her another treat to have while her friends had ice cream and...
she said, "No, I am going to have just a little bit of ice cream."
I said, "Sweet girl, you know that will make your belly hurt. Wouldn't you rather I bring you a different treat?"
she said, "No. I know it will make my belly hurt, but if I just eat a little bit, maybe my belly will only hurt a little bit and it's worth it to hurt a little bit because I like ice cream a big bit!"
HAHAHAHAHA! She cracks me up!
For the record, she said it was worth it!
