So, way back in 2009 when I first saw the idea (even before Pinterest!) to have your child hold their fist out to the camera, take a picture, add some text and then put a sucker through the photo as if the kid was holding it.... it was like an answer to a never uttered prayer. See that amazing post HERE! In 2010, I made and sent those out. And LOVED them! Teachers raved about them. My kids didn't have to write them. I was so happy. Plus no lame Spongebob or Dora Valentines needed to be purchased. Triple bonus. (I can't find the photos of those finished products, but believe me, they were cute).
2011 came along. I now know how to do this. My little girl wanted the same thing. I obliged.
My boys, however, were a little "over that." It is a little cheesy for a couple of big and tough 3rd and 5th grade boys, I guess. So we came up with this. Same concept, just a little more gruesome. :)
And now, here in 2012, Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. We decided to go silly again.
Tanner wanted "Happy Valentine's Day, suckah!!" but I was thinking name-calling didn't mesh with the holiday of love very well. So we compromised.
Brynn wasn't a fan of how the sucker looked going through her mouth so we settled on this.
Still cute. Still easy. And we're done.
Have you done photo Valentine's before? I'm always looking for new ideas!
