Unpacking Valentine Decor

And, here it is... our giant Valentine bin! We actually pulled it down two days ago and still haven't finished decorating. As much as I dislike chaos in the house, God is teaching me that sometimes other things are more important! And, I am finally getting it! I have been totally ok waiting. (I hope this lesson stays!)

The second thing they found were the craft items. So, we got right to crafting! I absolutely love these stamps from the dollar section at Target. They have lasted from year to year, and you don't have to worry about the messes of a stamp pad.

Grandma helped them make a "surprise" Valentine's banner. I was only allowed to see this much.

Luckily, the girls don't like sweethearts, so we just use them to make patterns and glue them to crafts!

I printed out a cupid connect-the-dots for each girl from Family Fun. Here is the finished project:
