We got a note a few weeks ago asking parents NOT to send any kid of treats for Valentine’s Day. I understand, but was bummed. I’m a cookie/cupcake bringing mama and I was looking forward to doing something special for Valentine’s Day. I even had a few recipes I was looking forward to trying.
This little pink note took the wind out of my sails.
So I was back to square one. What to send in the place of sweets for my little sweet and her little buddies? I went straight to Pinterest. I found some pretty adorable ideas like this one, this one and this one. (Ok, the last one involves a treat, but it was so darn cute…)
But in the end, none were really what I wanted. Enter the love bug. Jaia and I came up with the idea to fashion some love bugs out of pipe cleaners for all her friends. Personalized. Homemade. Sweet.
A perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, according to Jaia who tells me they ‘were a hit with all her friends…even the boys and her teacher!’ Excellent.
