Happy Valentine's Day!!! Are you having a fun day?
When I was growing up, my mom always made pink heart shaped pancakes for breakfast on Valentine's Day. I most certainly can't break tradition, now could I? I also used this mold to make heart shaped eggs. :)
I think I may have gotten a little carried away...
It was nice to have a big family breakfast. In the little bowls, you can see Hershey's Kissables and lots of conversation hearts. Not only do I allow my kids to have cupcakes for breakfast, sometimes we have candy! -Gasp!-
We used the Making Memories Love Notes line of patterned papers to make this super cute Valentine's gift for Breuklyn's Kindergarten teacher. Breuklyn cut out the hearts and then glued them together to make the flowers. I used a hole punch to make a hole in the center of the "flower" so that I could insert the stick for the Tootsie pop. Breuklyn added some ric rac to look like leaves, and it also held the Tootsie pop in place. We used the Love Notes paper to make a little, "Thanks a bunch!" card and were done. Her teacher loved it and Breuklyn was proud that she made the project herself.
We made cookies to go along with her Valentine's Day cards. I used the Wilton Heart Pan to make the heart shaped cookies. Once they had completely cooled, I dipped them in white chocolate and decorated them with various sprinkles and red frosting. I let them sit overnight before I packaged them in sandwich bags.
I think that Breuklyn's Valentines were really sweet. She was proud that she was able to write out the names of everyone in her class all by herself and was happy that she had made something special for her friends.
Valentine's Day was a huge success at my house. How was your day? Are you ready to count down to Easter???
