Shopping Sunday turned Manic Monday Made-It

Today's post is supposed to be Shopping Sunday: a recap of my weekend shopping steals. However, I just got home from shopping all day long and with all the great TV premieres tonight, I don't have time for the post. Just look at all the stuff I bought! It would take forever!

I will be posting Shopping Sunday tomorrow when I have time to take pictures and write and organized post with the costs and stores which I bought the items at. 

But, tomorrow is Manic Monday and also the wonderful Monday Made-It and I really wanted to post about that. So in order to not double post in one day, I will be posting about Manic Monday and Monday Made-It tonight and linking it up tomorrow morning. Hope you enjoy! 

I am very very excited to link up for Manic Monday by Classroom Freebies and Monday Made-It by 4th Grade Frolics

Updated now for Freebie Friday by TBA!

I was so inspired by all these other amazing teacher bloggers that I decided to try my hand at making a craftivity. I am kind of head over heels in love with this little guy. I think it turned out so adorable! I still have a lot to learn, but for my first one, it's not too shabby if I do say so myself! 

Without further ado, here is my FREE Valentine Snail Mail craftivity!
Feel free to pin on Pinterest!

I was really inspired by the play on words combined with the Valentine's theme. The pack comes with a pattern to make the Valentine themed snail along with four friendly letter templates for your choosing. They feature colored clip art, but are made to print very easily in black and white as evident in the sample.

I hope you enjoy using this craftivity! If you do use it in your classroom, I would absolutely love to see a picture! Let me know if you have any suggestions, need any changes, or would like to see more in the future. I am already thinking of making more craftivities because they are just so much fun!

P.S. I hit 300 followers yesterday! You are seriously the best! But there is still time to celebrate hitting 250! Enter my giveaway before it's too late!
