For this week we thought we'd work with the holiday and have the boys make their mothers a Valentine's Day gift. A picture frame with a photo of them in their uniform.
We started with simple wood frames that you can get for $1 each at Walmart. If you order them online you can get other sizes for $1.50-$2 each from Amazon or Home Depot.
I also got some heart themed stickers to decorate them.
The boys are always asking to paint, so this was a good project to let them do so.
I regularly take photos of everyone in our den so I cropped some down and had Costco print a bunch, after letting the parents chose which they liked best I trimmed them to fit the frame as the boys painted and decorated.
While they had their snack and let the paint dry we inserted the photos into the frames and the boys had a finished project to bring home at the end of the meeting.
