Valentine's Mail

I found these little mailboxes in the dollar section at Target a few weeks ago and started thinking.

On a recent trip to Michael's, I got this cute Valentine's paper that looked like lots of stamps. Let's be honest: I haven't scrapbooked in two years and I don't really need more paper when I do get started back up.

So I decided to make the kids Valentine's mailboxes. Each day I'll write them a little note. Sometimes we will do something special, and sometimes not. (Yeah, I'm totally trying to hide the junk on the table by using Alice's raincoat back there.)

Yesterday the kids got to have popcorn in the living room while watching a Scooby Doo DVD I had hidden away.

Jack was beyond thrilled about getting the "mail" in his mailbox. The first morning he gushed over it for about ten minutes and then went off to make some mail for me. Not a bad return for the $3 I spent!

Now I have something else to put on the grocery list for dh to look for at Target! Why didn't you tell me about this earlier?! *wink* That is a really great idea! Jack and Alice have such a creative and wonderful mom!
