Valentine’s Day Box

Matthew was WAY into Valentine’s day this year. He was adamant that we have his box and Valentine’s in on the very first day we could send them. He chose each card specifically for each classmate. It was very sweet to watch.

I had a great idea for his box, which means, of course, it was a total craftastrophy. Whatever. The idea was to use some of the brown packing paper I love to save, color hearts in crayon all over, and then paint on top with pink and red and white. I figured the crayon would resist the paint and we would have a fun, colorful piece of paper we could use to wrap his box.

Except it didn’t work.

Wrong kind of paint? I don’t know. I haven’t really explored the reasons behind the failure. Thankfully, Matthew wasn’t too worried either way.

He cheerfully drew a bunch of snakes and Pokeman characters with marker and painted over it all with water colors.

Nothing says “I Love You!” quite like a big, pink and green snake with its tongue hanging out.
