Valentines Day Preparation
So, once again, Pinterest saves the day!
For those of you who are under some illusion that I have ANY domestic skills whatsoever, pay attention: I don't.
So, I am NOT that classroom mom who volunteers and plans school parties.
Until very recently, I was the Mom that barely remembered to buy that cheap, easily ripped box of thin Valentines with some superhero on them.
My biggest accomplishment on Valentines Day was taping a cute pencil to each of those cheap looking cards! (A proud moment, to be sure)
But this year?
This year is different.
Maybe it's because I am leaving for China soon and have been in active
for the last few weeks.
Or, maybe it's because Tommy will be staying home with Tom.
All I know is that when I stumbled upon this adorable idea on Pinterest, I knew I had to do them.
It didn't hurt that I have more time than $$$ right now and these were very affordable!
I got mine for $3 at Wal-mart (Qty. 100)
(click here for the Blog that has all the instructions and link to printable fishbowl)
Cut out fishbowls & get child to SIGN their name and...... Voila'
So, without further ado...
60 some odd bags later, the boys are ready to present their "homemade" Valentine's to their friends.
And yes, that's as good as it gets! :-)
