We really enjoyed painting these valentines together. Harper was quite a mess at the end of it all— but that’s kind of part of the fun! It was the first time we painted at home (she paints at daycare all the time) so it was wonderful to experience that together.
Harper’s favorite part of painting was pointing to the paper all the paint was on and asking for “more please.” She also pointed to the colors she wanted more of. She cracks me up. At least she said please?
Here’s how our DIY valentines turned out— I added a little giftwrap ribbon from IKEA with a glue gun and a printed note:
And here is the lovely array of valentines we received!:
And of course I stored all of Harper’s valentines in the DIY envelope chair back I made for her a few weeks ago:
I love making valentines and plan to continue the tradition for many years to come! It’s a fun activity that keeps toddlers busy (and I welcome any activity that keeps Harper occupied for a good thirty minutes!)
Thanks to all of the ladies and littles who filled Harper’s Valentine’s Day envelope with lots of love this year!
Have a great week!
