Valentine's Day Surprises!

This morning I surprised my kids with light up heart spinners and Valentine snow globes.  They loved their surprises.   My husband is working tonight but we're planning to go out for a nice lunch on a different day.  Restaurants are too busy on Valentine's Day anyhow.  Maybe I'll make heart shaped pancakes and strawberry banana fruit smoothies for dinner :)  My kids will love that!   Happy Valentine's Day!

Fun, Easy Valentine's Day Craft.

Here is a cute and easy Valentine's Day craft to do with your preschoolers.  

Items needed:
Toilet paper tube
Construction paper
Pipe Cleaner
Crayon or marker

Valentine Butterfly!
Cut a piece of construction paper to size and let your child roll it around the toilet paper tube (covering the entire tube).  Glue to secure.  Precut the heart shaped wings and let your child glue them to the back of the tube.  Cut one pipe cleaner in half.  Tape pipe cleaners to the inside of the tube.  Provide small cut-outs or markers / crayons for creating a face and decorating the wings.  You could also write a note on the wings and use this as a Valentine "card" that your child could give to a special family member or friend.
