So. Friends with older kids. You held out on me. No one warned me about this thing called a "valentine box". We got instructions to decorate a shoe box or cereal box however HE wanted. That's it. So I let KJ go to town with scraps of paper, stickers, tape, glue, markers, etc. It looked exactly like you might expect from a kindergarten boy. a big red white and pink glorious mess, and that is just the stuff that actually made it ON to the box...you should have seen the craft table. He took it to school and well, it didn't look like some of the others. And it certainly didn't look like any of the amazing creations I've since seen on facebook.
