Valentine's Day Craft & more FREE printables!

Last Friday, Barnum, his sweet friend Aubrey (who he still calls Eva-from Wall-E?? WHY? WHY does he do this??), my lovely niece and I got our craft on!! Bailey and his sweet friend Bethany were napping!!

Brenna and I turned Barnum and Aubrey loose with the paint. (COLOR WONDER paint of course!!)

They came up with some GREAT stuff! Why don't I have pictures of them painting? Because you don't have free hands when preschoolers are painting!! (Color Wonder or not!! Helper or not!!)
Upon finishing their artwork, Barnum and Aubrey received chocolate, popcorn and a movie!! While they were occupied, Brenna took their artwork and transformed it into little candy covers!!!


I used the cricky to whip up some simple Valentine's Day boxes and ......


We got these!!!
Notice Brenna's box on the left. Her candy is adorned with these lovely FREE Printables from Erin Schlosser designs!! Erin's project was the brain power behind my project with Barnum and Aubrey.

  3. I love how you say you used your cricut to "whip up" something - girl those boxes are adorable - they do not look "whipped up"!!

    Are you soooo dissappointed and horrified that I sent my kids to school with *gasp* store bought valentines!?!? I gotta say, my big boy LOVED that he got to give his little buddies Transformer valentines :) Does the cricut have a template for Optimus Prime?
