Valentine Fun

Valentine Fun
Solis had a Valentine's party at her playgroup this week and mommy over here had to come up with a snack.  Usually at these parties, it's a smorgasbord of cupcakes and chocolate (no complaints from me!) so I wanted to make little snack bags that the kids could eat later....after their stomachs recovered from all the sugar at the party!
Since I was sick the 2 weeks prior, I totally failed this year in getting out vday cards.  So I took the easy route and just put a pink outfit on my girl and printed out one hour photo valentine cards at Walmart.
So I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for Solis to practice her abc's/numbers/colors etc.  Sometimes my plans work....other times they fail.  I'm not too proud to admit when they flop and this is one of them.  I wanted Solis to match up numbers using cards and clothespins with numbers on it.  The matching part was easy peasy for her but she couldn't open the clothespins.  That fine motor skill just isn't there yet.  So I ended up opening them for her and she slid the card in.
Trying so hard...
Happy with her finished product
