Arrow Love

Connor wanted to make arrows for his Valentine's day gift to his class. I thought that was a great idea so we found pencils and then went through some tough design decisions; paper or feathers, painted bands or no-bands, sharpened or not, glued or cut? We tried a few variations and decided on one that was easy (my #1 requirement) and looked like a valentine arrow.
Connor working hard. After we attached the paper heart to the pencil with some sparkly glue, he wrote a little note on each one and we added bands to a few.

These would have been a great Valentine's Day gift but I got something even better. The boys made me a heart pencil arrow with a poem on it. Jamie tried to recite it but Con had to help as he kept forgetting the words. It was precious!

I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
