22 of them, plus 3 for the teachers. Whew!
We also like to throw a little something in them besides candy. But since it was so late in the game, we decided to ditch the homemade paper (a craft i decided would be better executed sans a hard deadline) and we made seed tapes instead using a mixture of flour and h2o as the glue that holds the cosmos, bachelor button and sunflower seeds to the Daily News.
My fingers have also been busy crocheting heart shaped dishclothes for the teachers (which thankfully has helped keep the said fingers out of the M&Ms jar.) We also had to run to a couple stores today to pick up the soap accompaniments to the dishclothes and to deliver our Valentine well-wishes to our beloved grocery clerks we're so fond of and who are also very fond of Ri.
Hoping i can get just one more cloth crocheted tonight and then it's on to assemble the school's book order and pack for our weekend at the in-laws.
