Once the banner dried, it was time to put on the letters. Buddy Bear held the sheet of letter stickers and had Baby Bear point out the right letters and then they worked together to put the stickers on the banner (letter identification). When they were finished putting on the letters, the banner said "U R Loved." The last thing I did to the banner was tie a slip knot in each end of the yarn so that it could be hung if the recipients so choose. This was a fun, easy project that both kids could easily help with and learn at the same time.

A Valentine Banner Tutorial
Happy Valentine's Day!!! It is a day to spread extra love and be all mushy, gushy and you can get away with it. Lately we have been working on a top secret project so that we can spread the love to our family who is close by and farther away. I won't tell about all the projects we have done because some family that might get a package in the near future (like it is being mailed out today, but you are still very loved) does read my blog because they love me. :) I wanted to do a project that both of the kiddos could help with and it would incorporate some school subjects and they wouldn't recognize the fact that they were learning (I try to be all sneaky like that). I came up with a Valentine Banner that recycles by using brown grocery sacks. I have kind of been into making crafts out of recycling lately.
