Soldier Valentines

Last year I thought it would be fun to give some different Valentine’s to my husband. I loved the idea I saw on Pinterest, pinned from this store. I went to the dollar store and found some very large Army men in a pack of four.Soldier Valentines at What I Live For I cut out some hearts and tied them to the soldiers with the following quotes from love songs:
  • “Love is a Battlefield”
  • “I’d catch a grenade for you”
  • “I can’t fight this feeling anymore”
  • “Fight for this love”
I think my favorite soldier is the one holding the grenade promising to “catch a grenade for you”. These are just a simple, fun way to express your love for the ones that mean the most in your life. They would also be cute for boys to give out at school or to their crushes.

Popsicle Stick Catapult

My boys are to the age that they are very into weapons, heroes, soldiers, etc. So when we made this Popsicle stick catapult they were beyond excited. It was so fun to watch my 5 year old's face as he launched marshmallows across the room!

I loved that this craft was quick, the boys were able to do a lot of it on their own (ages 5 & 7), and it was made of things around our house. You will need: Popsicle sticks, a milk jug or water bottle cap, rubber bands, hot glue gun, something to launch (pom poms, marshmallows, dry cereal, etc).
