It's Friday the 13th and I've saved the best for last. This one has two poems! You can just use the monkeys for 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, or you can also use the alligator and do 5 little monkeys swinging in the tree! Monkeys all ways seem to be getting into trouble! The tongues on some of them is great! I just love how my sister-in-law made the alligator, even though he looks a little like a dragon.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
