McIver's class was instructed to make some sort of Valentine to be shared with the class last Thursday. McIver and I decided to make salt-dough ornaments together, then he wrote the names of each child on a little tag that said Happy Valentine's Day.
We started with salt, flour and warm water. McIver was very meticulous in his measuring.
Rolling out the dough is serious business - he had to take off his sweatshirt. He rolled them out and we used a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut them out. McIver used a straw to poke a hole so we could thread ribbon through them and make an ornament.
Olivia got in on the painting/glittering. She cut out red paper hearts and wrote out her own Valentines for her class. She gave everyone a DumDum lollipop. (She had to redo several of them b/c she left them out and Tex helped himself to about 5 lollipops!)
