Just consider this a small PSA:
Pre-made, store-bought valentines and 4th grade boys do NOT mix.
There. I've done my civic duty for the day in warning all you moms out there that as your sweet boys get older, it gets harder and harder to find something suitable to pass out to classmates - especially of the GIRL variety - and not be embarrassed by them. But yet they are still young enough to want to pass out said valentines. Oh what is a mom to do??!
Well....if your a mom like *me*, you let your little boys happily buy and address Transformer Valentines of the store-bough $2.99 variety and promise your oldest that you'd help him make some. And then you get distracted by the other bazilliondy things going on in your life and, oh yeah, a week of snow days, then you suddenly remember - DRAT! - the Valentine's parties are tomorrow...tomorrow! And then you (like most techno-hip moms) put out a call on Facebook for just the right thing that will a) not embarrass child and b) can be done in the 15 minutes you have to spare.
And of course, my wonderful facebook friends came to the rescue! As we already had purchased Tootsie Pops to give to his friends, Candi pointed me in the direction of these cute little Valentine Playbills from bunnycakes.typepad.com. They were just perfect! I printed them out on some dotted swiss cardstock, rounded the corners, had E sign them and then tied them onto the lollies. I was golden! And now you other last minute moms can be, too!
Here are a few other fun sights that were suggest if any others of you are still looking!
