I scored some beautiful Valentine’s Day-themed paper in the dollar section of my favorite store (Target, of course) and the girls and I got to work making decorations for the house. One of the things I love about doing arts and crafts with my kids is that there are no rules – we make things up as we go along. It’s very freeing, much more so than when I make things on my own. I find I’m able to embrace the process, as they do, rather than the product. And when it does come down to the results, they are surprisingly wonderful. Creating with the girls is often better than a yoga class or a trip to the gym when it comes to relieving stress and finding my way back to the always elusive present moment. Ohm!
Here are some of our Valentine’s creations:
