With Valentine's Day coming, I thought it would be nice to do some arts and crafts around that theme. I wanted to keep the crafting ideas simple but fun so I checked online for some ideas, made a list and then headed to my local Duane Reade for the supplies.
I'm sure you're wondering why go to Duane Reade for craft supplies. Mostly because I wanted to get supplies within a budget. Crafting is nice but I don't want to spend on a ton on money on paper and glue. Some craft supply stores can be a bit pricey but I knew my local Duane Reade would have items at a good price. Maybe even on sale!
So after printing out my craft idea list idea...a truck delivering hearts of love!... I headed to the Harlem Duane Reade store on 125ftf Street. First we stopped in the stationary area and found lots of items to be crafty with. We checked our list and picked up glue and construction paper.
Then we headed over to the candy isle to get the next items on our list. We scored by finding Wonka candy hearts and peppermint candies. More items checked off our list!
Of course I always find something interesting and fun when I shop at Duane Reade. This time it was the Valentine's days cards. I guess Superheroes, Star Wars characters and Dr. Seuss celebrate Valentine's day also. Who knew! LOL
Of course I took more photo of items we saw while shopping and I've added them in my Google + photo album: Craft Supplies at Duane Reade
Once we had our items we headed home to start being creative. My son was so excited. While he made sure the candy was ready for our crafting project, I did the hard work of cutting out the shaped we needed. No way do I let my son have scissors. Yes I know he's old enough but still....
Soon everything was ready to be put together. For some reason my son felt the need to taste test the wheels for our project. After enjoying his treat, it was time to get down and crafty. We quickly put together the truck, background fame and then glued on the wheels.
Then it was time for the hearts of love to fall out of the truck. For that my son needed his mommies help. Of course I was happy to help. We soon finished our project and my son was so proud. He's such an artist!
