(Yes, today is Sunday, not Monday. Sorry to give any sleep-deprived mamas out there another reason to doubt their sanity. [Been there!] I would like to say that I was *ahead* of the game…but that’s just not the case. I wish I’d done my crafting a week ago…but I didn’t. So I’m posting this hot off the press…on Sunday, not Monday.)
For the last several years, my girlies have had SO much fun with their Advent calendars, counting down to Christmas. I had visions of doing something fun for Valentine’s Day…but with my girls’ birthday immediately following Christmas (the first week of January), I just didn’t have it in me for another big project.
I bought a $1 pill box for each of them (check the dollar store or Walmart). I am glad I found an extra-large one…it will be easier to fit tiny treasures.
I cut paper to cover each of the days, stamped out a little message, and Viola! this Valentine’s Day countdown was born.
I put in a Hershey’s Kiss for today.
The balance of the week I plan to fill with some tiny treats (conversation hearts, M&Ms). I also plan to put in a couple of activities…I’ll write something like “Make Valentine’s Chex Mix“…to mix things up a bit.
I love sharing holidays with my girlies! What fun things do you have planned this week? We’d love to see your ideas!
