Valentine’s Day Family Craft Challenge

It is a snow day and our electricity goes out about every hour. So I gave up trying to work and put out a muffin tin of goodies and challenged the family to a craft off. Even my husband got in on the fun!

Everyone in my family is very competitive, so a challenge was right up their alley.

My son was happy with this…

Until he saw what his dad was doing! Oh man, I think my husband might actually have a chance against me!

Suddenly my glitter in a bottle cap wasn’t looking like a winner. I better step it up!

Oh no! It’s getting even more cute!! This isn’t right…

After some smack talking and crying over who gets to eat the candy first, we finished our crafts!

My 4 year old daughter made these bows for her American Girl Doll’s hair.

My son made this master piece. Whatever you call it? He was pretty much out after about 10 minutes.

I made these pins.

You could also attach them to a bobby pin for hair accessories.

After going through about 3 glue sticks, my husband ended up with this Love Bird. I have to admit, it’s pretty darn cute!! I might hire him to help me with my blog.

What do you think? Who won the challenge???
