Since the girls are in preschool this year, this was the first time they exchanged Valentines with their classmates. The girls thought they had hit the jackpot. First they got to make a craft (which included taste-testing the candy), then they got to give them to their friends, and finally they got to receive oodles of cards and sweets. What could be better?!
I had seen this easy craft on the internet where you cut out wings and attach them to lollipops to make butterflies. If I had been feeling more ambitious, we could have gone the extra mile and added googly eyes, but since Jimmy was very hands-on in this project, I didn’t think it was worth the hassle to add glue and small objects to the mix!
Here is Becky decorating her wings:
Here’s some Susie wings:
And a Susie smile:
And here’s a pile of the finished butterflies:
A sweet treat by my sweets!
