I am very happy to say that this year I managed to get the kids making valentines! (It doesn't always happen)
It was a good activity for Saturday -- something to occupy us for awhile, and no need to worry about the mess until dinnertime.
A whole display of Rachel's cards:
Putting cards into envelopes is such a rewarding activity!
Here is James' artwork. Andrew was hard at work too, but his were all in the envelopes before we remembered to take a picture.
And I finally got around to attempting to make some felted balls today. They are hard work! Think about taking very chilled cookie dough and rolling it into balls -- I'll be waiting to see how my muscles hurt tomorrow.
I think I'll make these "as needed". And I think my ball of roving (I think that's the term) will probably last forever!
