Magic Marker Monday — Happy Hearts

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

Welcome to Magic Marker Monday! If you haven’t heard about Magic Marker Monday yet, click here and then hurry right back…


Did you all have a nice Valentine’s Day? We decided to have some fun with some Valentine’s day paper crafts over at DLTK’s Growing Together — one of our favorite sources for quick and simple craft ideas. We just printed these guys out on cardstock on our printer, cut them out, and then glued them together. My six-year-old cut out the big pieces and I cut out the little ones and then she glued them together. They turned out pretty cute and she was quite proud of them.


What about you? What has your little artist been up to this week? Link up and join in — we can’t wait to see!

Oh good, not just me hanging on to Valentine’s Day either then! My daughter gave me a real corker this year and even used our ‘code’ word so I know that message has got through.
Best wishes

Awww, how sweet! This year, my boys, of their own accord, made valentines on the computer and sent them to a couple of their favorite girl cousins.
