little hearts

It is raining here right now and I am so happy and relieved. It's been unseasonably hot--in the 80's--for about a week and a half, and I've been very grumpy about it. There's no air conditioning at my school, everyone seems to freak out a little. It occurs to me it's not usually so hot at any point in the school year, especially not in January. So I'm happy for a little cool and rain.
And these hearts are putting a smile on my face. The boys fingerpainted over the weekend. I let them do just as many sheets as they wanted--a lot. They had fun. Those were some of the pictures I lost--of them painting and of all the sheets drying on the table. I cut some of them into hearts for a little vertical garland. We may do more for Valentine's day. Dieter is starting to get into cutting. I do need to get him some scissors other than these scallop ones though.
I'm tired today. I took a nap after work, which I never do. Maybe that's a good thing--to get some extra sleep every now and again.

My goodness, 80 degrees! It's been below zero around here for the last 2 weeks, I'm a little envious.

Love the vertical garland!

Rachel said...

Oh, that garland looks so pretty! I am half tempted to do some finger painting myself!!

Those hearts are so sweet. I bet the kiddies love to look,see their art on the walls and think of how much they're loved.

Amy said...

what a cute idea! Zoe and I made garland last year...this year I haven't decided yet...I am thinking salt dough heart ornaments.

estrellazul said...

pretty idea, tank you !!

Nicole said...

Great idea - my 3 year old loves any excuse to fingerpaint.

And wow...I can only imagine 80 degrees! We're having a heat wave today at about 50 - last week it was hovering around zero!

Love the hearts! We need to get our Valentine's projects started around here...

You found a perfect place for them! They are lovely - great idea, thanks!

Shannon said...

Oh! That is precious! I love that idea so much, such a simple thing, and so easy to keep from year to year!

I can only imagine 80 degrees. It is below freezing here. And what school in southern California doesn't have air conditioning?

Mary Beth said...

Shannon--we're very coastal, so haven't really needed it. Usually it's cool and lovely in Oxnard where I work.

Haust said...

Such a pretty garland! I'd like to make something similar with my kids! :)

I don't understand the tiredness either! Thursday night I came home from work (not even 5:00 p.m.!) and I was so tired I drifted off right there in the living room! Fortunately, I was able to get to bed thanks to Green Husband holding down the fort...maybe we're not sleeping well, even when we are sleeping?!

That heart string would make me smile, too! Very sweet...
