These little What I Like About You mini books are just 15 pieces of 3x2 pieces of card stock with a hole punched in the top. The idea is that every morning for the first 14 days in February, my husband and my boys will find an additional little card telling them something I like about them at their breakfast table.
I numbered each page. Feb. 1 = page #1.
I think I will have them at their place at the table just standing up on these little paper clippy things.
Some of them are funny. (And clearly inspired by the song: What I Like About You).
I made a slightly different version for each of the boys and my husband.
The little red hearts are actually cut out of red duct tape.
(See - I do try to butch up these crafts for my guys)
Sure this is cheesy.
I don't know if it will be something they keep or even think about for more than a minute.
(Well, 2 of them will because 1 is sentimental and the other never throws anything away)
But I believe there is a huge affirming value in being able to hold something that your parent made for you in your hand. And if it also tells you that you are a great joke teller, all the better.
