Today we had lots of fun making simple envelopes that we will use next week when we deliver our valentines. Each child laid out paper doilies and various hearts that we found around our class on a piece of white construction paper.
|The kid's paintings were prettier than my sample because they used more paint (although too much sometimes went right through the doily)|
I then simply folded the paper in half and used colorful duck tape to tape up the sides. I've done this type of painting before using blue contractor's tape or contact paper. Unfortunately, I can't find where I recently saw the idea to use doilies and hearts (but it's so pretty and much faster than tape:)
