cupid's wings door hanger

cupids wings door hanger
We made this cupid's wing door hanger last year using a handled paper shopping bag, glue, and WHITE feathers!

I made one for my door and Juliet made one for hers. She had just turned 3 and the process of gluing down feathers was really exciting for her.

It also worked as a spare pare of wings for her best puppy pal.

fluffy and the valentines box
We also made this valentines box out of an old cereal box. I was on a recycle box craft roll last January. Not sure what I'll come up with this year, but I hope it's something fun. Valentines crafts are my very favorite! (I think it's because of all the pink and red. I love that color combination.)

Just put several Valentines books on hold at the library--do you have any favorites to recommend? I was just making choices based on the covers...(does anyone else do that?)

I do the exact same thing, and once brought home a book all about animal droppings (don't know how I missed that on the cover) but I did!

Our new Favorite bedtime story is, "In a blue room" by Jim Averbeck, we love "A sick day for Amos McGee" by Philip Christian Stead. I have a bunch more ideas too, let me know what you think of these though!

What's on your list? Sydney and I will be heading to the library this week!

Opps those are NOT Valentines books... That's what I get for multi tasking:)

ha! I love that you brought home a book about animal droppings!! That's hilarious.

In a Blue Room is my very favorite bedtime story of all time. Oh, I just love it. So glad you and Sydney are loving it, too.

We haven't read A sick day for Amos McGee, though...must look for it, thanks!

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one already thinking of Valentine's Day. My kids were asking yesterday what the next holiday is so we can begin crafting something and I was going to go through my stash of craft books, but I love your two ideas here. I am slowly learning that with a three and five-year-old, simple, easy crafts are best (unless I want to finish the crafts by myself!)

I was just looking through a Pottery Barn Kids catalog and craving a cute mailbag that hangs on the back of a chair. I've been wanting that forever but $20 is too much for such a bag. Your cereal box is similar in concept so we'll be doing that one without having to shell out any money at all!

My daughter really likes Valentine Surprise by Demas. The Day it Rained Hearts by Bond is another favorite.

One of our favorite Valentine's books is Happy Valentine's Day, Dolores by Barbara Samuels. It's about two sisters, which my two girls like!

Minnie--I was eyeing those mailbox bags, too and wishing I had more sewing skills! The cereal box option is a good, easy one and your kids can personalize them however they want.

Thanks for the recommendations--I'm off to see if our library has them. Fingers crossed!
