We don’t do V-Day at our house. It’s a consumer holiday, I’m anti-consumerism so we just don’t do it. However, the kids do get to give out Valentines to their entire classrooms. I refused to go buy $3.00 boxes of cards marketing some cartoon character and my bid for the “I Choo, Choo, Choooooose Free Trade” Chocolates and Train cards were vetoed by Oregon Dad… So, what did I do today? Well let me tell you. Starting at 8am this morning, I began a GIANT batch of homemade dough. I then proceeded to knead red coloring throughout the balls of dough. I swear my hands will be red for days! Then Little Critter and I began rolling the dough out and cutting out hearts with a metal cookie cutter. We then placed each heart into a cute, Valentine-y cellophane bag and tied them closed with twisties. The kids all made their own labels out of a 2×2 piece of cardstock, they wrote… “Here is some play-dough fun for you!” We attached the labels to the twist tie and Viola… we have 75 Valentines. Yep, 75 heart shaped balls of dough later we have all 3 classes completed. I really should have ordered the Free Trade Cards! 🙂
