Some of my fondest memories are from Valentine's Day as a kid at school. I can still remember going to the drug store with my Mom and picking out a box of Valentines for my classmates, poring over every one before finally making my choice. My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite...in the '80s these were the best! Then there were the mailboxes we'd make, set atop our little desks in our 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade classrooms, waiting to be filled with those tiny white envelopes from our friends. At home my Mom would make special Valentines projects with us too- a heart for Dad, a card for my Grandma. Doilies and ribbon, glue sticks and scissors, and folding the red construction paper just so, to make a perfect heart. Memories!
This year Henry did a mix of all three things- we've been doing some fun crafts at home and at Pre-K, he picked out some store bought special items for his buddies, and then we also went online to Pear Tree Greetings so he could choose Valentines for school- they have the cutest Valentine's Day cards for kids! He took a long time to choose- and in the end it came down to these and a rocket ship lollipop holder, but Robots ended up ultimately winning. We've been spending some time every night working on writing his classmates' names, and it's been really fun to have this little project to work on together.
