Valentine's Day is just around the corner... just a week to go! Do you have sweeties for your sweetie? Are you planning a night out somewhere? A nice meal at home? I'm trying to figure out what I will be doing with the children. We love to do something special on Valentine's Day... and we usually celebrate it all day long starting with a fun breakfast and ending with a fun dinner at the end of the day... I'm trying to come up with some great home made treat ideas as well.
|I love these heart shaped straws from Terrain!|
|these darling cupcakes from Better Homes and Gardens would be a lovely treat to bring to the classroom!|
|Deocrate your own sugar cookies or Pop Tarts... are these not adorable?!|
|Martha Stewart's conversation cookies would be fun to make, give and receive!|
|coffee, hot chocolate or ice cream would be so much fun to eat with these spoons from Alessi!|
|Little ideas blossom into greatness with these darling seed packages from Martha Stewart|
|A sweet, healthy and delicious afternoon snack!|
|They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day... especially when it's served with Love!|
|Not all Valentine treats have to be sugary! One year I made flubber for my son's classroom. We packaged it up with a copy of the recipe tied on to the bag. These were fun to make and a huge hit from the children and the parents of the classroom. Recipe here.|
|It can't get any simpler than this! Create a heart shaped stamp from an old paper tube!|
|These lace pancakes are so easy and fun to make. I think I'll make a batch while the kids are skiing on Sunday! I'll toss them in the freezer and take them out next Thursday for breakfast! Click here for my recipe!|
If you're anywhere in the Northeast this will be the perfect weekend to start creating some Valentine treats... we're due for a perfect storm... a large Nor'Easter will be dumping a couple of feet of snow on top of us, potentially stranding us for a while! Get to the gorcery store and bring your Valentine Shopping List!
Oh - and it's Friday Eve already!
