Valentine's Day: Cookies and Cards

This past Sunday we decided to get ready for Valentine's Day! We're making cookies and cards.  I gathered up different shapes & designs of scrapbook paper, some red construction paper, glitter, and stickers (not pictured), some heart cookie cutters, and a sugar cookie baking mix that I found on clearance (after Christmas sale! Gotta love them!). I had some chenille stems, but didn't use them. 

We started off our Sunday morning with making cookies. Little one was very excited to start baking the cookies. I mixed the ingredients, and placed the dough on the wax paper. I gave little one the rolling pin and he had a ball!  He enjoyed rolling, and cutting out the cookies with the cookie cutter. 
Little one was very excited to decorate the cookies, and had lots of fun.  He decorated the cookies to his heart's content. We used icing, and sugar sprinkles. We had the "food markers" but that didn't work out too well. 
Cookies decorated and ready to eat! He was so proud of his baking and decorating skills. :) 

Later in the afternoon, we started working on our Valentine's day card. I cut the hearts out of scrap book papers, and gave him pieces of paper, and the hearts for him to layer with glue. He wanted to put stickers on them, and once we finished we placed them on the table to decorate with glitter! 

We'll be using these cards for a Valentine's Day exchange that we're participating in, and for him to give to his friends at school. We'll be making more for family. :)
Look at the beautiful collection of Valentine's Day cards. They are beautiful, and my son was so proud. He said, "Mommy I like them a lot! Do you think my friends will like them, too?" I told him, "Of course, they will! They are beautiful!" 

Here's to wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved ones.
