So I finally got around to going through the wee ones’ Valentine’s bags from school. We don’t keep or eat the candy or the valentines themselves, but tons of people are now sending in pencils or notepads or other actually semi-useful goodies that I do want to keep. Thus I spent this weekend making a garbage and a keep pile from each of the wee ones’ bags.

Then I got to this.

Seriously, people? You’re making me look bad. I had Mister Man slap on a piece of chocolate to each of his valentines I got half price at [email protected] the day before in the car on the way to school. And this is what you create. An iP*d valentine. From scratch. It even has an appropriate playlist. I hear this was customized for each child.

I may have to step it up a notch next year.

    I'm impressed. I like the juice box idea too.

    That is all kinds of spectacular.

    Every year, I see cute ideas I'd love to do, but our school has a nothing edible rule, which is pretty limiting.

  • Pat

    That is amazing. It must have taken hours to make all of those from scratch, and individualized for each child in the class! I'm wondering how does one create a home-made ipod?! I was cheap and just had my kids give the cheapest, I mean, least expensive store-bought Valentines with nothing else. Mrs. No-Nonsense No-Frills No-Extras.

    Now that is an EPIC valentine. I LOVE IT.
