  • I really like the Valentine's craft, especially since sewing is not involved, it makes it easy for kids. Another cute Valentine's craft I enjoy is a kiss pillow. You can check it out at http://www.favecrafts.com/Valentines-Day/Kiss-Me-Pillow Enjoy!

  • We made the Coffee Filter Butterflies this morning, and BOY were they a hit. My daughter (2) enjoyed the coloring, the splashing of water was especially fun (when is it not?). I did the pipe cleaner part, but she really loved flying them around the room. We're going to make more and give them as little "gifts" from her for Valentine's Day for our closer family. Very cute.
