orange you glad

**Last day of our Valentines Giveaway.  Click HERE to learn more!**

This is the first year I’ve “done” Valentines with my kids.  I have to admit it’s just not usually my thing.

But I thought it might be a fun way to teach Elijah the joy of giving to others.

At first I was just going to go buy a box of cards from Target, but then I thought we could attempt simple creativity.  I’m so glad we did!

Since his favorite color is orange this seemed like a perfect fit.  (And Mama liked the idea that no candy was involved!)

a1000-3 I kept is simple and purchased ten oranges (on sale) and some plain white labels (also on sale).  I used markers and toothpicks we had at home.

First I gave Elijah an entire sheet of labels to color himself while I wrote the greeting on a different sheet of labels.  I stuck one of his and one of mine together with a toothpick in between.  He pushed them all into oranges.

Super easy, and he can’t wait to deliver them to his friends tomorrow.
