The boys and I (and even Daddy!) have been working on their valentines. I searched my favorite inspirational place, Pinterest, for cute ideas. There are a ton of awesome valentines out there! You can also see what Jackson made last year here.
I decided on cute little Hershey Kiss mice this year. It only cost me $3 total for both boys' classes! I already had all of the supplies needed except for the kisses.
The original post was from Parent Magazine, which includes directions. They also include a template for the ears and feet, but I found that it was a little too big. They also only included one set on the paper, so I traced them onto the card stock. They used gray yarn for the tail. I simply left the paper tag on one of each pair of kisses to use.
We kind of had a little assembly line going with Ryan and me helping the boys glue the hearts and feet together. I folded the bottom of the heart in to help attach them. Then we moved on to sandwiching the Hershey Kisses together. I added the eyes myself figuring it might be a little too difficult for the boys to help with that. Then we added the cheese to the bottom. Jackson signed his name on the bottom before I added the mice to the top. I used the sayings, "You're a mice friend," "Have a mice day," and "Mice to know you!"
