Have you ever made Valentines with a 3 1/2-year-old?
I just did. And it was pretty fun.
Rather than buying Valentines for his friends at daycare this year, I suggested we make them. I figured he'd say no, but instead I got an excited, "yeah!"
Alright, I thought. So we got to ditch the castle guys in the playroom in the basement and come upstairs where I retrieved the construction paper.
Rye picked out three pieces: a white sheet, a red sheet and a black one. I thought black might not send the right message, so I convinced him we should use red, white and pink.
So I made hearts, and he thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I like feeling talented at something!
And I liked that we weren't watching Justice League movies or playing in the basement with action figures like usual.
Maybe his friends will like our homemade effort, too.
Either way, we had fun doing it.
(And yes, is this a weak effort for a blog post or what? I just haven't been feeling it lately. Thanks to the four of you who still check to see if I've come up with something to say again yet...)
