Make Your Own Valentine Origami

 on January 28, 2015

So apparently I blinked and it was already Feb. 2015!  How did that happen?  Time to think about Valentines for the kids class....

My family has started a new tradition on Sunday nights.  After dinner, we clear the table and gather around to gorge ourselves on doughnuts and do an art project. It has become the highlight of our week.  

We are trying to eat better and cut out most of our sweets, so doughnut night is a big deal.  In fact,  I am pretty sure I heard one of my kids growl as the last doughnut was being lifted from the plate!!!
