Valentine's Cards: Pinterest Style

I love Pinterest! I have been a nanny for almost 10 years and I have no idea how I survived without it for so long. Ideas I would never have thought to search for now appear right before my eyes. All I have to do is login and voila: It's all right there! On the downside, it seems that every time I log in, time speeds up. After spending what I am sure is only a few minutes on Pinterest, I am always shocked to see that an hour (or two!) has passed. Must be a space-time continuum thing!

A few weeks ago, I saw these two idea for Valentine's cards and wanted to try them. The first one is what I am giving the kids I take care of (they are glow stick bracelets, in case you can't tell). The second picture is what the kids made for their parents and grandparents. I thought it was super cute when I saw it, and let me tell you, it is as cute in real life as it is on the internet. The kids loved making them. They were pretty easy to put together, although we learned the hard way that the puzzle pieces had to be coloured with markers rather than painted. The kids are very excited to give these valentine's to their loved ones.

Links to both ideas can be found here and here.
