I love the holidays! Any holiday is a reason to celebrate. In fact, now that Christmas is here, I’ve already started planning and thinking about Valentine’s Day. I’m pondering what I want to make for my daughter to hand out as Valentine’s Day presents for her classmates and teacher.
Since Field Trip Girl is in elementary school, the principal still allows the students to have class parties and hand out Valentine’s Day cards to each other. But believe it or not, some schools have completely done away with Valentine’s Day parties. They don’t want teachers to take time away from instruction or encourage kids to eat too much candy. This is so sad in my opinion. I believe kids need to have fun for as long as possible. So, in our house, we celebrate all the holidays including Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and even Ground Hogs Day (really)!
PaperMart.com Discount Party Supplies
One of my favorite places to shop online for holiday craft and party supplies is PaperMart.com. PaperMart.com has so many great products to choose from that allow me to be creative when the holidays roll around.
For example, for Christmas, I like to order ribbon for wrapping presents on PaperMart.com. Their ribbon tends to be stronger and more durable than what I can get at my local craft store. For Easter, I purchase my children’s Easter baskets from PaperMart.com, because they have the largest of natural baskets made of bamboo, seagrass and willow.
After much thought, I’ve decided to order these heart shaped tins and create a Valentine’s Day present for each child in my daughter’s classroom. I want to use them as gift containers and put small trinkets inside including heart shaped erasers, cute cupid stickers and pretty flower stamps.
