Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

I Heart My Pencil

These are a cute Valentine that the kids can really get into. You can use a full sized pencil or even mini pencils or markers for the body.

You will need:
  • Red, white, pink or Valentine's Day card stock paper
  • Valentine's Day themed stickers
  • Red, pink, or Valentine's Day themed pencils (You can find these on Amazon, local dollar stores, or even the dollar bins at Target!)
  • Red or pink pipe cleaners

1. Cut out a butterfly shape from the paper. I find it easiest to do if I fold the paper in half so the wings are even.
2. Cut two slits in the middle of the paper. This is where the pencil will slide in.
3. Slide pencil through slits.
4. Decorate the wings with the stickers. You could also draw messages or a "Happy Valentine's Day! From...." note.
5. Wrap a piece of pipe cleaner around the top of the pencil near the eraser to form the antenna and you're done!
