Today is quite possibly the darkest, greyest day of the year - excuse the dark photos. Last year Kyle and I started making puffed, sewn hearts for his class. They were simple enough, but stopped being fun to their maker after about two and a half were complete. You-Know-Who finished the rest.
This year, I'm going to ask my kids to make one small piece of art. Then I'm going to encourage them to incorporate that one thing into a simple drawing or a photo that we will then copy into bulk Valentines.
