My daughter decided she wanted to make all her valentines this year.  She is over the store bought ones, dread this sounded like a major effort to me.  I stumbled across some origami heart valentines that were right up her alley.  She loves origami and can make some wicked complicated stuff.  I am always baffled by the directions when she asks me for help.  I have to completely focus and read through it a zillion times before I get what they are saying.  She has learned to just figured it out herself.  My brain just doesn’t work that way.

I had her give it a try and it proved to be an easy project for her.  She made about 25 of hearts in about an hour.  And here I thought it was going to take a few nights, hey I was impressed.  Once I finally found a store that sold Dum-Dum lollipops (the Blow Pops I got were WAY to big) it didn’t take us long to stuck them in and attach the little note.  I think she did a great job on what I am sure is her last year of handing out Valentines.
The four year-old chose a valentine with a pirate theme

We all had fun working on valentines this year.  Hope everyone has a Happy Valentines Day!

    Those turned out really good! I miss those school holidays. Pretty sure I don't have to send any Valentine's with Hannah to college tomorrow! 😀

    Your daughter's origami hearts came out great! Thanks for sharing the link to my site. I appreciate it 🙂

    Those pirates are darling. Kind of wishing I made those for my daughters valentines. I guess there's always next year.
