We made these cute refrigerator magnets as Valentine’s presents today (my inspiration were these Valentine award cards). Most of Clara’s male relatives got one (except we unfortunately ran out before Pa was named… no matter we have other surprises for him). Clara claims that Valentines are “only for boys, mom.” She has become uber-aware of gender differences lately and also super aware of princesses. I’m not sure if the two are related, nor which came first, but it is interesting.
The Valentine magnets mostly involved gluing, which is Clara favorite thing ever, so she did most of the messy work herself. If you would like to make your own, you will need some muffin cups in various colors, a refrigerator magnet from your favorite local pizza joint that has been cut into pieces, white glue, and a few foam heart stickers.
Glue one muffin cup to the magnet, then layer two other muffin cups on top and glue. Those two I cut a bit smaller so that the ones below would show. Top everything off with a heart sticker and press down with all of your might. This last is an integral part, apparently.
Let them dry, then hang them up on your fridge!
