Valentine Boxes



This morning I decided to let the kids have craft time and make their valentine boxes. As you can see Possum's box has nothing to do with valentine's day. It is all about hunting! Squirrel was very independent with hers and didn't want very much help. She doesn't care that the stickers are already sticky, she still has to add glue to them. Because of this her box is covered with blue from the glue stick. After we got the boxes finished I gave them each a valentine to put in the others box. This did not go over very well with Possum. He was not understanding the whole concept of exchanging valentines! It took me about 10 minutes to get him to understand that you are supposed to give your card away. Now that he comprehends this he has checked his box about every 15 minutes to see if anyone else has put a card in his box! I guess I will have to occasionally leave him a little treat. They are so happy with their creations and can't wait for Daddy to get home from work to show them off.
