Perler Bead Magnets

I l-ooo-ved playing with perler beads when I was younger. Turns out, I still do.

It was CB's idea to bust the beads out this morning, but I stayed at it long after they had moved on to other endeavors.

CB made a star so she could sing Twinkle Twinkle to it every night while she is lying in her bed and BBD made a "friend snake".

I made magnets.

That is a panda, ninjas, and butterflies unless you were uncertain.

I also made photo corners, but my magnets are too big so I need some smaller ones to complete them.
AND they glow in the dark.

Valentine Swap: The Giving

I participated in the Valentine Swap organized by Aunt Peaches. I am so glad she did this. I thoroughly enjoyed making them and waiting to see to who and where I would be sending them. I can't wait to see the Valentines I will receive in the mailbox!

While I made my Valentines, I put out a smorgasbord of Valentine-y materials for my kiddos as well.

Here they are with their finished creations:

Here are mine:

I stamped, colored, and applied glitter glue.
Oh, and I used pop up dots because I love them.

I also included a punny Valentine wish:

{I can't show you my made-for-family ones...not yet}

I am seriously hoping this can be a new tradition. I love it so.
