Valentine’s Day crafts with the kids.

This morning I did a little crafting with the kids. I know these are far from being amazingly inventive and there are yarn crafts everywhere way cuter then these, but that’s all I had today. And for some reason I have a hard time coming up with cute kids crafts. So if anyone knows of a good site, please pass it on to this momma.
All we did was wrap some heart shaped wooden pieces with yarn and then hot glued them onto the canvas. Like I said, not the most inventive craft I have ever done, but I just love the simplicity of it.

I’m pretty sure that once Valentine’s Day is over, the one with the 5 hearts on it will be getting a permanent home in my bedroom.





So what have you been crafting for Valentine’s Day?
Looking for a special way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Then head on over to The O’Banions blog. They are the cutest little couple celebrating Valentine’s Day a sweet new way.

  21. It is our outlook in out conduct most often changes how we see things. Sometimes this alteration is good and sometimes bad but it is our paradigm that exerts the most control over what we see.

  22. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  23. Hi there to all, because I am really keen of reading this blog’s post to be
    updated on a regular basis. It consists of nice data.

  24. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours these
    days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web
    shall be much more useful than ever before.

  25. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog
    before but after going through some of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and
    I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
