Hello Mommies! I hope you’re staying warm in this brutal cold. I have to admit that I like to believe I hate the cold, but I secretly love that it means cozy clothes and blankets, staying indoors without guilt, red wine, and hot chocolate 🙂 February is probably the coldest of winter months but it means
chocolate Valentine’s Day which I’ll take as a reason to decorate the house and celebrate LOVE. I thought it would be fun to share a super cute and easy craft you can do to express your love with your kiddies.
The other night I was reading my son, Mister, “The Kiss Box”. If you aren’t familiar with the book, it’s an adorable love story between mother and child. Mama Bear offers various vessels to contain their love while they are apart but none seem right. It’s not until Little Bear suggests that they make each other a Kiss Box, filled with a hundred kisses so that they are able to stay connected no matter where they are. Whether it be an errand to the grocery store, a business trip, or the first day of school, their “Kiss Box” is tender reminder that we are always together where it matters most: in our hearts.
After reading this I got my creative juices flowing and came up with the Kiss Jar.
It’s seriously the easiest thing to make and how cute is it?? I have created an *almost free* listing in my Etsy shop so you can download the files and create this yourselves. The fun part for the kids will be the kisses. Once you’ve downloaded the files, you will have a sheet of kisses that they can cut out and write the names of their loved ones on. They can even have Dad, for example, kiss “his kiss” and place it in the jar. Whenever little Johnny wants a kiss from dad and he’s not there, all he has to do is open up the jar and take out the kiss.
