Did you ever notice that when you write the same word over and over it looks like it's spelled wrong? Or is it just me? I am having flashbacks of writing lines on the chalkboard during recess...I will not talk to my friends in class. I will not talk to my friends in class. I will not talk to my friends in class... I was a bit of a chatterbox and I had a mean Grade 5 teacher, after about 10 lines I was terrified that I was spelling 'friends' wrong and thought he would make me do it over. Simple but effective punishment. I tried telling my kids this story, and all they wanted to know is "What's a chalkboard?" Seriously? Part of the punishment involved cleaning the chalkbrushes at the end of the day, those of you who can remember chalk at school know what I am talking about.
Back to now...
the challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is to make anything with a HEART on it!
I feel sorry for elementary kids today, poor things will never know the pleasure of having to fill 4 chalkboards with lines...
But they still get Valentine treats and a party, so we made treat 'bags' for my kids' classmates, and we had an assembly line going for my heart project. Gotta say I'm sick of hearts for a while:
Here's the finished product.
Here is a close up:
Here's a peek at what's inside:
And here is the pattern to make them, super easy!
*The complete product list is at the bottom of this post.
I used our new Kraft cardstock for the base. The kids did the stamping,folding, and filled the treat bags. (My son complained the whole time, "Do I have to stamp all of them?" Which sparked the whole discussion about writing lines on the chalkboard...)
I did all the cutting and the gluing.
