Last year I used Pear Tree Greetings for Valentine's Day cards, and somehow it's time for another V-Day giveaway for you readers. Up for grabs is $25 off any Valentines Day cards from Pear Tree Greetings.
This will be the first classroom Valentines experience for Truman, and since he is one of twenty seven kids (!!) in Junior Kindergarten I can't wait to see the cards he brings home. All I've been told is that we need to supply an undecorated shoe box for their party and the Valentines Day cards should not be addressed to each child individually, since it will be too difficult to sort them out among the masses. Fine by me, although I'm sort of bummed that I can't decorate the box myself….er... help Truman decorate his shoe box, because that was literally my favorite part of Valentines Day parties growing up. I still remember using tin foil and conversation hearts and boat loads of glue. Ah, early beginnings of crafting.
But I digress. Truman's party is coming up in a few more weeks, and I wanted to get him some fun cards that aren't too over the top. I mean, would I be *that* overachieving mom if I picked a personalized card with three pictures of T-man on display? Probably, but I still love the kids Valentine's Day photo cards to death and might go for it next year once I get a feel for the proper card selection for school parties. I looked through all of PTG's classroom Valentines and eventually selected the Monster Heart in red/blue. Not too girlie and 'lovey', a little goofy so that Truman can stand behind my choice, and perfectly tiny so that it fits into those 26 shoe boxes in his class. I also ordered some of the matching stickers, which are supposed to be gift tags, but I figure that most 4-5 year olds kind of obsess over stickers to be placed on their bodies/clothes anyway. I might put the sticker inside of the envelope with the card for a few of his most special friends, or maybe I'll make the sticker the actual Valentine for some people. We shall see. But I think both will be big hits for the big (heart) day!
My handsome Valentine <3
Hey kids, will you pose for a picture for me in this meager make shift V-Day photoshoot? (Never mind that we exiled Henry to a different room, since he was attempting to steal food from the children as always. And never mind that Cecelia's new Valentine's Day sweatshirt still has the tag on it, since we opened the care package from my mom seconds before this picture).
Now for the part that includes you:
