arrowed!

happy valentines’ day, friends! i’m not in the ol’ bloggy habit right now, but i do want to share with you N’s class valentines for this year. i’m pretty obsessed with them, because yeah, i love sticks. and felt.

it was super-easy! N found a bunch of thin sticks in our yard and got inspired to make arrows. of course, she wanted to attach pointed rocks to the ends of the sticks, but i didn’t think that’d go over well in the kindergarten. so i remembered a cute pin from a year ago that had a much more kid-friendly way to make a stick arrow. when at waldorf, felt is always the first thought. we got down to biz cutting up some felt triangles and such.

N was a busy heart-hole puncher and autographer, while i hot glued the felt to the sticks. (you could use craft glue and let your kid do this part, but we’re in love with the instant gratification of a hot glue gun.)

N chose the felt palette, and i swoon over her choices.

using red and white baker’s twine, N attached the cute cards she made by tying a bow (a newly acquired skill of hers – woot!) in hindsight, it would have been supercool to put the stick through the heart hole she made before we glued the arrow tip on. (duh!) cute either way though, right?

happy valentines’ day!

    Super duper cute! And we have a sort of decorative vase in our hallway filled with sticks the kids n I found through the Fall–Finally!! Something to do with them! However, I don’t think giving them out to MY LO’s buddies would be a great idea. However, I do have some very cool “hanging” ideas in mind! As I complete them, I will link you up I here so you can check me out :D Thanks som much for the serious inspiration….Jeanine
    PS–I just can’t do the ole blog in thang right now either.. To busy in my brain LOL! TakeCare!
