On the side of the glasses we’ll write something like, “The better to see you with, My Dear Valentine!” or “Here’s Looking at You, Valentine!”
The kids insisted that I try them on too. Boy could I whip up some mean Valentine treats in these, oh yes I could.
You know you all want to have a chance to look like that. (Why do I do this to myself?)
Click here to download the pattern for these glasses. Simply fold a big piece of heavy paper in half and place the pattern along the fold…then trace and cut.
Now, if we get tired of cutting out the heart shaped spectacles, we’ll spend some time making something a little prettier (and a little chocolatier).
You’ll find the directions for making this Valentine Flower here. It’s got a chocolate peppermint pattie in the center…which got me to brainstorming for a clever little Valentine wish to print on the center heart.
Something like “We were mint to be together, Valentine” or “Have I mintioned how glad I am to be your friend?” Seriously, I got caught up in the momint and laid in bed one night thinking of way too many mint-y puns that just didn’t work for one reason or another. Mostly because I think first graders are too young to make a commitmint. And also because there’s not enough space in that little heart to write something like, “Roses are red, Violets are blue, There’s always lots of merrimint, When I’m with you!” Yes, I almost went mintal on you this time.
So I settled for boring old, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” What a complete dissapointmint! Ah, but it’s the sentimint that counts.
Okay, I’m done now.
Let’s not mintion this again.
But please feel free to leave a commint. ;)
