Free time valentine

The first grader brought me this valentine he drew during his free time after lunch. Because we were talking about penguins during art class, he drew his version of a penguin on some scrap paper. I love that the penguin has a toll-free number to call to report problems!

The little guy didn't really know why he made the penguins inside the card blue, but he did say he wasn't happy with the hearts he drew. He thought they looked more like hats. One blue penguin holds his heart on a string like a balloon.

I gave him a hug and told him how much it meant to me that he used his time to make the card. Many valentine cards will be exchanged at the school party tomorrow, if we aren't iced out by the weather. This one beats anything from the drugstore or a class project made with fun foam.
