Do you scratch your head and wonder why you have to send Valentines with your one year old anyway when they can't even say their name, let alone spell it, on a silly piece of card board with either a princess or a super hero on it?
So I was at Target recently looking for Valentine's for Little C to give to his classmates and I came across these adorable little rubber duckies with hearts on them...
And it hit me!
They would be PERFECT for Baby D-Nut's class! They came three to a bag and they were $3. Not too shabby!
Here's what I did...
Grabbed white construction paper from the kids art table, and punched a 2" circle with my circle punching thingy to make a tag. Any shape for the tag would work but I just love using that tool!
I stuck a "candy heart" sticker on the tag and punched a hole in the top with a hole-punch. The heart stickers also came from Tar-jay. Dollar bins fo life, yo!!!
Now here's where the OCD in me started to come out and I was getting twitchy! I thought I had some Valentine's Day ribbon on hand and after tearing the damn house apart searching for it and proclaiming that the whole thing was a disaster and I should just throw in the towel and how now my project was going to look STOOOPID because all I could find was BLUE ribbon... Hubs told me to CTFD and pull myself together!
"What about twine." Three simple words solved all my life problems and I was back in biz-nass!!! What would I do without that guy? It would be ugly, people.
Anywho... I used the twine to tie the tags around the duckies. BOOM!
Note: It makes more sense to write your child's name on the tags before putting them on the ducks. I bet you could have figured that out for yourself, but just thought I'd throw it out there.
Voila! It's not candy, it's not baked goods, but it is age-appropriate and very sweet. It also could not have been easier!
You could even say it was easy peasy rubber ducky squeezy!!
::snort:: I kill myself!
Happy Valentine's Day!
