N2 had their Valentine's Day party at school on Wednesday. I had planned their valentine cards a while back but just hadn't taken the pictures off my camera. I tried to convince them to just do cards for their friends but they wanted nothing to do with that. Noah chose a space them of course and Natalie chose horses (another of course). Noah's were a little bit of a pain to make because they all had to be hand cut and hand written.
Their teacher sent home a heart for us to decorate and then send back. I think she just wanted some decoration in her classroom. I'm tired of N2 making collages so we decided to paint with marbles. I like this kind of painting because it's not messy! It didn't last too long though but that is OK because I wasn't looking for something time consuming. Maybe if they had each just painted with one marble it would have occupied them for a while longer.
I didn't cut the heart out first and that was a mistake because I couldn't tell where the lines were for the most part after they had painted.
