This is the first year that Jackson is in school, so the first time we are making mass valentines for Valentine's day. I made these homemade valentines with some leftover packing paper I used for my
I printed out and then cut up some labels for the valentines. I worried that these little preschoolers would get a brown paper heart and then just chuck it thinking that it was just a brown paper heart. I wanted to make sure they knew that candy was inside... how they open it... well... I am expecting them to just figure that out.
I cut out some hearts out of the packing paper. We stuffed it with M&M's, conversation hearts and a valentine bouncy ball.
I had Jackson draw hearts on the front of the valentine because even though I was making the majority of the valentine, I still wanted him to be involved.
I switched out my sewing needle to the double needle and sewed a double stitch around the outside. I just sewed in the tag. When I had about 3 1/2 inches left to sew, I just kept the needle in place and stuffed the candy inside the heart.
