Valentine’s Past

Putting together this post was a fun trip down memory lane! Here are some of the Valentine’s Day activities we did last year… Enjoy!

Heart-shaped Felt Cookies — Almost good enough to eat!
Chocolate-covered Strawberries — These are definitely good to eat… yum!!
Volunteering at a local assisted living center — This was one of Emily’s favorite activities!
A not-so-sweet Valentine treat — A good alternative to candy for breakfast.
Heart-shaped Garland — Made from tissue paper. Looks almost like stained-glass!
Valentine’s Day Felt Mail Set — Emily still plays with this much-loved felt mail set… and now Clara does too!

    I just have to tell you that I am amazed DAILY by the adorable, wonderful, engaging, and super-fun activities you come up with to do with your sweet girls! I'm constantly debating whether or not we want to homeschool our daughter (and daughter-to-be) and you definitely give me hope that it can be done amazingly well!

  2. Oh my has it been year I've been reading your blog! I remember most of these post from the first time around. Been meaning to do a post like this myself, this just reminded me I have yet to do so.

  3. I love trips down blog memory lane. I remember most of these but not all. I think that mail set is super cute, and I love that Clara is getting in on it.

  6. Felt cookies & mail! How fun!

    Do you use wool felt…or will WalMart felt work?

    I've got a great pair of scissors (that can cut through most anything!).

  7. I'm going to check those out. Thanks.
