In my son's classroom, they exchange gifts for Valentine. Last week, I got an email from my son's class teacher with the list of kids name with whom he will be exchanging gifts. It didn't have to be big, just small items to exchange. So I made cards with a sign "I am a sucker for you" and put a sucker in that card. I thought it was cute.
Next morning I showed it to my son and asked him if he liked it enough to give to his friends at class. He was like "mom I like it, but can we give something like pencil instead". It was gently putting that he didn't like the "suckers" idea..:(. I should have known better, he is not a big fan of sweets.
So off I went thinking as to how to gift pencils for valentines. There are a lot of ideas posted online. After looking at some of the ideas, I came up with this. And was really happy at how they turned out to be. Hope he likes this one..:). After making the pencil arrows, I went browsing/hunting for printables to use for this project and found it here
