Twins First Valentine's Day Craft

Happy Valentine’s Day to my blogging world!  I hope you all had a lovely day.  I had a great day. I had a busy morning out and about, came home, made lunch, did a Valentine craft with my boys, got things ready for my evening with hubs while the babies napped, dropped the boys off at a babysitting fundraiser at our church, met my husband back home for a two hour date in our baby-free house with candles, a fireplace and dinner from Cheesecake Factory, picked up the babies, put them to bed and now I am writing this post. 

My friends, this is how I know I am a mom.  It’s 9:30 on Valentine’s Day and I have already accomplished all of the above and am getting ready for bed! Haha!  My days begin early when I’m the mom of twins!

Tonight, I want to share the Valentine craft I did with my little guys this afternoon.  This project was really easy.

I picked up my supplies from Hobby Lobby while I was out this morning (chalk board, wooden shapes, white paint marker, red paint) and spent around $10 for my supplies. 

When I got home, I made lunch and had this craft completely finished in less than thirty minutes.  I started by writing the phrase, “Double the kisses, Double the hugs, when your blessed…” with a paint marker. 

I then painted my babies hands and feet and made prints on the chalk board.  I painted Aaron’s left hand/foot and Ethan’s right hand/foot.

Once that dried, I filled in the rest of the phrase the paint marker and added some hearts. 

Lastly I hot glued on some inexpensive wooden shapes.  I personalized the owls by drawing a heart with my babies’ intial in the heart, and I wrote the year on the heart.

This project was fun and inexpensive.  I was hoping the prints would have turned out a little cleaner, but considering the fact that I have very squirmy little ones, I was pleased with the results.  'As long as you can still tell it is a "W" and a "V", then I'm satisfied with the finished project.  I plan on displaying this somewhere in the babies’ room.
