We bought crayons and sidewalk chalk (which I plan to use in the garage if it's raining) and then inspiration struck. Why not do a Valentine's Day-themed felt project for our door? For Christmas, I made Katie a little tree out of green felt, with felt ornaments to decorate it. I thought this might keep her away from the real tree. (Hah!) I got the idea from Pinterest:
So why not a big heart? A few dollars later (and a very sore finger from a LOT of cutting), voila!
Near-instant Valentine's fun! And yes, it was hastily done and rather half-assed. Who cares? Katie is 2 and she loves it! :)
P.S. I am now marveling at what a luxury it is to have just one kid. I've got to get as many crafts done as I possibly can before the baby comes! My days of 2-hour breaks (while Katie naps) are numbered. I've heard from many a mother of 2 that they just *never* seem to nap at the same time! And when they do, it's a small miracle. :)
