Won't You BE MINE?!

We've been gearing up with {hearts} and {x's & o's} over at our place
to give homage to the day we remember OUR VALENTINES!

Here are some fun, easy, kid-friendly ideas
you can use to add some :::PARTY::: to this week of LOVE!

::: coffee filter hearts / color with washable markers /
use a paintbrush dipped in water to create the tie-dye effect / dry and display :::
::: "I LOVE YOU" art / use paint tape to create shapes that you want to remain WHITE /
use coloring utensils on the space exposed / peel and frame / $4.00 white frames from Target :::
