Astronaut Valentines.


Oliver is on a major astronaut/spaceship kick right now. He's always playing with his "space guys" and whenever we see those white airplane lines in the sky he swears up and down that a spaceship made them, not an airplane. This new obsession made it easy to decide on the valentine's he'll be handing out to his little preschool classmates next week.

I ordered these cute plastic astronauts from Amazon, painted a red heart on each one using acrylic paint and attached them with baker's cord to the moon card.





Happily each bag of astronauts came with a moon buggy and an American flag that has kept Ollie busy for days. Can you imagine the smile on his face when he hands these babies out?!

  6. I can't believe you whipped up such a great valentine with a new babe in arms. But then again, yes I can. You care about the details and your kids and that's really obvious.

  17. Those are really cute and it's such a unique idea. Is it normal in the U.S. to give out Valentines Cards at school and kindergarden?

  18. Yes Sophie, it is common for children in the US to give out valentines to each of their classmates in kindergarten and elementary school.

  19. Very cute idea! My son is also gaga for outer space. One question: What kind of printable paper did you use? I'm guessing it had to a thicker quality. Thanks!

    1. I wondered this same thing? Also did it use all of your ink! :) I'm dying to try this.

    2. I used plain white card stock. It does use up some ink but not as much as you would expect. :)

  20. May I ask if you just used a normal punch? My hole punch doesn't seem to reach in far enough to the center of the moon. I've tried two different hole punches.
