We copied them from Amy and Alfredo, who saw them on Danyelle's blog. Kyle's a bit older, so he designed his own. He drew the jar and wrote his message and then I photocopied his valentine on kraft cardstock.
He cut out the jars and added his classmates' names in red. Then we worked together to tie the bugs to the jars. This was harder than I thought it would be, but since there were only 15, it was manageable. He picked out a different color embroidery floss for each friend - sweeter than sweet. See that roach down there? So gross, and it was carefully selected for Kyle's best friend, who he assured me would use it, "for jokes for years and years..."
A perfect handwork activity for an almost-eight-year-old. He was very proud of them which is so wonderful to see.
Hope you have a lovely day! xo
