Will You Be My Valentine? | Blogger Valentine Exchange

It's no secret that I love doing crafts with Noah.  We love to paint, color, use stickers, and make play-doh creations.  So when it was time to make Valentines I knew I wanted to have Noah help with his amazing two year old artistic skills.  Since I've had many experiences doing crafts with Noah, I've learned he prefers to be given free reign instead of being micromanaged.  So I decided to just have him paint multiple "pictures" using our watercolor paints.  He was adamant that I painted too and had me "help" him on each piece of artwork.  



Once he was finished painting, I let them dry and then I cut out some hearts.  I had bought some pre-cut hearts at Michaels that I then glued Noah's hearts to.  I then addressed them to all of Noah's friends (and some family members), wrote a little message, and signed Noah's name.  


Noah then helped by picking out a sticker or two for each Valentine to act as his "signature" :)

^^^ please excuse the black garbage bag over our table.  It was leftover from a recent painting project.


We had so much fun making our valentines!  One of my favorite things about this weird blogging world is the friendships I've recently made with my fellow bloggers.  I love connecting with other moms who have kids around Noah's age.  Elizabeth and I had a lot of fun hosting a Blogger Christmas Gift Exchange and knew we wanted to do something similar again soon.  Noah doesn't go to school yet and doesn't have a reason to give out a ton of valentines.  I reached out to Elizabeth to see if she'd be interested in hosting a Blogger Valentine Exchange.  She was on board, so we reached out to some of our blogger friends and we all decided to make and mail each of the kids a valentine.  Noah rarely gets mail, so it was so fun checking the mail and receiving these super cute valentine crafts and goodies.  I was super impressed with the valentines everyone sent!
