snow day craft

snow days make me want to eat and craft.

craft? OK. eat? not OK.

so Grace and I worked on a Valentine craft.

first i cut out a bunch of red hearts in all different sizes. some with pinking shears, some with straight edges.

then we painted them.

while we waited for them to dry, we took a snow break.

finally we taped straws on the back and cut them to different lengths to create a valentine bouquet.

what do you think?
