I'll admit it; I hate doing crafty things with the kids. It creates a huge mess and inevitably I end up doing a lot of the work when I didn't want to start it in the first place. But we've been stuck in the house for a long time due to the weather and it looks like there's no end in sight, so we may as well kill some time. Oh, and let me just also admit here that I don't like Hallmark holidays, like Valentine's Day. But the kids were due to have classroom parties and they needed something to collect all their love notes, so we decorated buckets. Unfortunately, with all the snow days and now intersession for year round school, their Valentine parties won't be for a couple more weeks. We had fun, anyway!
