Construction paper! Crayons! GLITTER!!!!

Life lesson:

Elmer’s glue + glitter = FUN

I passed along my knowledge of all-things-glitter-and-glue to Adelyn for Valentine’s Day. Why? Because we made little Valentine’s Day cards for our families and friends! She is a huge fan of “cwafts”, particularly if we can use paint or glue, and this was the first time she’d gotten to play with “sparkles”. Let’s just say the girl was hooked. I mean, it’s glitter.

{{Can I get an ‘Amen’?}}

Believe it or not, she was super careful with the glitter. It’s like she knew she didn’t want to dump the whole container over and waste the precious pieces. And she was also very patient. She understood that we had to go through the following steps:

Step 1. Draw a shape or word on the Valentine in glue.
Step 2. Pour glitter onto glue.
Step 3. Tilt Valentine around so loose glitter sticks to glue.
Step 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as necessary until glue is covered with glitter!

Seriously, look at this concentration.

She was so proud of her Valentine’s!
{{This one says “My Friend”, for her friend Hannah Clare.}}

She took her work very seriously.

Even Colton wanted in on the action, but alas, he’ll have to wait until next year.

We also made a little picture frame for Daddy for Valentine’s Day. It’s amazing what some red paint and a little glue and glitter can do to spruce up a $0.67 wooden frame.

More glitter!

The finished product (with some Valentine’s Day tulips we bought this weekend). Daddy liked it! πŸ™‚

{{Aren’t the tulips lovely? So spring-y}}

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day, all!

Adelyn is 2 years, 8.5 months old and Colton is 7.99 months old.
