He cut out a bunch of hearts, and then glued store-bought Valentine's cards to them. That was the first phase of Operation: Valentine's Day.
Phase 2 was to make Martha Stewart's Heart-and-Lollipop Flowers. The Little Guy needed a lot more help from My Big Martha for this project since he was new to the scissor thing, but that's what Grandmas are for.
My Big Martha did a slightly different take on the project, but the end result was the same: adorable lollipop Valentines that the Little Guy was just so proud of!
The Little Guy left his mark on them by adding the Transformer stickers. Because nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like a crazy car that turns into a robot that may or may not want to destroy the human race. Isn't love grand?
This year, I got into the Valentine's Day spirit myself. Using my school pictures, I made some Valentines for a few teachers I pal around with. Please note: I only have these school pictures of myself because they made me take them for the yearbook, I swear!
This particular card is for the art teacher.
OUTSIDE: I made this card especially for you...
INSIDE: ...while I was in the bathroom. Happy Valentine's Day!
Isn't that classy?
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! May all of your cards be of the Little Guy variety, and not mine. :)
