Robert's School Valentine's
With Robert being in 4th grade, I wasn't sure if we still had the Valentine's Day events or not. We found out on Friday that yes they could still exchange Valentine's. I thought maybe we would keep it simple, but Robert wanted to make the "Gum People" that he had made several years ago from the idea in Family Fun. So taking the opportunity to make these with him (probably for one of the last times :( ) We sat down and got to work. I did forget to take a picture but thank goodness for sticker backed fun foam pieces. We found cowboy pieces at the Dollar Tree and then we found a "girl" bag that ended up having skirts and tanks for the girls, plus tall boots or high heel shoes. To understand what we did here is the link to Family Fun for the direction, http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/be-my-valentine-gum-guy-cupids-666451/. But mainly we made people out of pipecleaners, 2 sticks of gum and some fun foam accessories. They turned out really cute (again) and I am kicking myself for not taking a quick picture. Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day and that you had the chance to spend it with the people that you love.
