Last night we made and decorated heart-shaped cookies....
The kids woke up to a small treat from St. Valentine.
We read our favorite Valentine book:
Then we made a craft. I saw this idea at Waltzing Matilda. I loved it because it incorporated the the American Sign Language sign for "I love you". Very fitting as we are working on asl signs this year.
This is the prayer on the back of the St. Valentine Day holy card:
"O St. Valentine, lover of Christ and of the Church, we ask your intercession that we may learn how to love God above all things, and to selflessly love one another. O glorious St. Valentine, pray for us, that we too may have the steadfast faith of the martyrs."
We made this quick and easy craft last Friday. It is simply torn tissue paper stuck between two pieces of heart shaped contact paper glued to a heart shaped frame.
Tonight we will have a dinner of Macaroni and Cheese and Hot Dogs! Not a very romantic dinner, but a favorite of my kids. I think this is a personal record for most crafts done in one week! We painted, we glued, we cut, we tore....Happy St. Valentine's Day.
