Valentines for school an unique idea

Valentines Day is right around the corner, so, my daughter and I put on our thinking caps for her school Valentines. We don't like to do the run of the mill Valentines with a store bought card and some candy, (even though, this year I was very tempted because of all the uncertainty in our lives the last few months and the unsettled living we have been experiencing).  So, we thought we would do the dollar section toys and grab bags filled with odd and end Valentines day gadgets and such in a pretty bag.  I then talked to one of my friends and she told me that is what she was doing this year, because her daughter hasn't done anything like that before.  I thought...now what??  A couple of days later, I overheard an advertisement on the TV for heart shaped balloons on sale.  Prefect!  So, that is what we are doing...heart shaped balloons (I checked with her teacher first to make sure it was ok, do this too if using this idea), with heart shaped balloon holders (which I had to do a bit of searching for, but turned out better than the usual balloon clip holder), a couple pieces of Valentines day candy (because what is Valentines day without a piece of candy or two) and our hand made Valentine puppets (which we got the idea for the craft from our favorite monthly magazine).  I do not have a picture for you of the finished project, but will after I get the balloons.  Did you know there is a helium shortage?  Crazy right?  Well, there is, so get those orders in to make sure you get those holiday balloons filled.  We are looking forward to making our puppets, filling the bags and picking up the balloons.  I had to be a bit more creative this year, but it worked for me and will work for you!  We also will be doing another Valentines day craft, which we will post in the next day or so...time permitting.  With our recent move back home, I am a bit behind on everything...but I remember - to take a deep breath and know it will all get done.  And the extra craft time?  I make time to take time and it is well worth it!!  What we learned:  if we put our thinking caps on - we can always come up with a unique idea, how to problem solve, don't get discouraged if you find someone is doing what you were thinking of doing and being creative is fun!  What we shared: fun, quality time, make the time to take the time to put a smile on each others faces and new ideas can be better than old ones.
 
Happy Pre-Valentines day to you.  May you spend some quality time with a loved one this week.  Dyan

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. I am so glad that you stumbled upon it and enjoy reading it! When I receive comments from my readers it totally makes my day, even if I am having a bad one, which was the case yesterday. So thank you! I've had a crazy first week of kindergarten with my daughter, but I am gaining speed and hope to be posting much more. All of my best! Dyan
