Valentine’s Day

Some holiday’s are meant to be extravagant, and I guess Valentine’s Day is one of those.  However, we take the low key approach to this one.  No unit study, and no excruciating amounts of glitter and construction paper.  Not that we haven’t done that in the past, but really, every year?  It’s a bit much.

Last year, AFTER Valentine’s Day we hit Wal-mart and stocked up on lots of clearance Valentine’s.  Seriously, 25 cents for something that was $1.97 the day before, I’m on it!  

This week the girls spent their free time writing out cards for their friends at Awana, ballet and basketball.

We also lucked out at the grocery outlet  and were able to buy Pillsbury’s Valentines cookie dough on sale 4/$1 (yes, FOUR for $1).  We baked up 8 dozen cookies in about 30 minutes.  This gave us enough for Awana and basketball (ballerinas don’t eat cookies).

We had a little party for my kindergarten Sparks class at Awana.  It involved cookies (surprise), and crafts and Valentine’s.   I have the BEST group of girls….I came home with loot of my own!

It was simple.  It was fun.  It was inexpensive and stress free.   How was Valentine’s Day at your house?

Pin It!
