I had grand plans for construction paper Valentines with Scooter, but ended up buying some of the licensed character cards after I realized what I had planned would cost more and probably require more patience than I could get from Scooter. As it was, we had to split signing the cards into 3 separate sessions. Maybe in a year or two we can get a little crafty.

Remember, this is the first year we managed to do something crafty--every year it's been character cards.

I was so proud of L. this year. He made additional cards on all his own--he found photos of limousines on the internet, reduced them on the computer, and printed out one for each kid in his class!

Those are great! You've reminded me that I've got to buy some conversation hearts tomorrow before the blizzard hits. I've bought NO candy yet this year, for shame.

I bought white cards and we are going to put puffy glitter heart foamie stickers on them to mail to family. For school (30+ for one (she added in a ton of staff), 14 for the other) we went the store-bought non-crafty route. Tinkerbell and Kung Fu Panda, to be specific. The big hit this seems to have been the dinosaur holograms ones, which I hadn't even seen when we got them at the evil big box store that we love and hate.

Hey ~ Happy Valentine's Day! (A little early...)

Oh--and you actually got Scooter to sign them, which is fantastic! L. didn't write names on his, and I had to do the ones for T. So I think when you're helping a child sign his/her own cards it's probably easiest to keep things simple.

I just saw your comment now, Omaha--sorry! (And you know we have a healthy love/hate relationship with evil mega store, too!)

Hope your Valentine's Day was fantastic!
