Be His

We made valentines for Dash's class last night. I downloaded the adorable cards from I Heart Naptime here. We just printed them, cut them out & Dash addressed them.




Here he demonstrates.

One of Dash's class friends is a non-sighted girl. I normally wouldn't single her out, but I thought that since the Valentines this year were so visual, we would try to do something she could appreciate as well. I found a Braille translator online and printed out "I'm a sucker for you." (Get it? The candy is a sucker! Yay!)

Then I dabbed over each dot with a toothpick dipped in white glue to give it dimension. I honestly have no idea if it'll work. I'm not sure how much dimension is required, but I'm hoping she gets a kick out of the card either way. Dash also added some dimensional foam sticker hearts, so failing everything else, she can feel those.
