Be sure to fly by next week for our sweet Love Birds Valentine Party. Here’s a little peek:
Choo Choo! That’s right, we’re already getting ready for Valentine’s Day — and the Valentine’s Express is in town. For all the little train loving boys and girls, this train Valentine printable is going to be a big hit. We’re thinking class parties and playdates. How about you?
First, download the printables (there is a Heart Train Printable and a Star Train Printable). Print the train out on a standard 8-1/2″ by 11″ piece of heavy white paper, like card stock. Follow the fold and cut directions to cut out the train. Assemble your train by gluing the bottom into place first. Then glue the top of the train together, leaving the top of the cab of the locomotive unglued for treats to be stuffed in.
Remember to fill your train up with Valentine treats before it puffs away (or a little conductor finds it)!

Quick tips for making birthday party flower arrangements:
1. Find a fun, unique container (glass vase, mason jar, thrifted wooden box, or garden pot).
2. Pick flowers in a coordinating color scheme. Group like flowers together in your hand and bind each group with rubberband.
3. Arrange in vase. Add ribbon/twine or leave plain
4. Keep the arrangements loose – maybe even use flowers from your own garden!
