Valentine's Monsters

What fun would Valentine's Day be without a nifty Valentine's Box?? I was so excited when Andy got a special assignment at preschool to use his creativity to make a valentine's box with his Mom. I asked Andy what it was he wanted to make and he told me he wanted a furry green monster with big teeth and big eyes. All we needed was some felt, fun fur yarn, pon-pons, wiggly eyes and pipe cleaners, this is what our creativity came up with:

Two hairy monsters ready for a yummy Valentine's feast! Since Andy's box was such a hit with Luke we had to make him one too. My favorite part was adding little heart and flower jewels as eyelashes (You'll have to click on the picture to really see them).

Andy's teacher laughed when we turned it in and said that she loved it and that I was just like her...."I have to go all out on a project." What can I say...a box covered with paper and hearts just wasn't good enough for me or Andy.

Andy had a blast at his first ever Valentine's party at preschool. His teacher is so sweet, I just love her!
Andy and Luke carry their boxes around the house everywhere like they are their best friends. Luke will ask for a fruit snack but I have to feed it to his monster first. It's funny! I've said it before but holidays bring on such a whole new meaning when you have children. My life feels so fulfilled when I see my boys happy.
