Happy Valentines Day

My daughter picked out her Valentines and we filled them out yesterday and this morning.  She goes to Awana on Thursdays so she really wanted to give Valentines to her classmates. :) So the rest of the day I will be hearing "is it time to go to Awana yet?"

I also saw a cute idea at Money Saving Mom the other day so we had to try it ourselves.  After nap time yesterday my daughter and I made play-dough.  It was a lot of fun and today we packaged them up for her Awana classmates.  I think they turned out really well.  I was also very excited about the verse the kids are memorizing this week Jeremiah 31:3 "I have loved you with and everlasting love."  It worked perfect for Valentines Day.  

Here are some pictures of our Valentines:

A couple weeks ago we also did some painting of hearts.  Here are the pictures of them:

This is shaving cream with a little paint.  My 3 year old had a lot of fun.

I remember the daycare Cady used to go to used the shaving cream paint...she's allergic to it :)She looked like she had chicken pox for a week after they used it!
That is scary to be allergic to paint! Poor Cady

Super cute idea! Thank you for joining our blog hop! I am already a follower and I really enjoy your blog.

Morgueangel - I read somewhere that you can beat shampoo with a mixer like frosting to make it forthy and use that like the shaving cream if that is the part she is allergic too.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
