Valentine treats and a fun blog

What do you do when you have a lazy Sunday afternoon at home? Gather the kids, melt some chocolate and go to town. These are all easy, fun ideas I have seen all over the place. Dipped Oreos, Marshmallows and heart suckers made from two mini candy canes. I don't know who to give credit to since I see them everywhere and only have them bookmarked in my head.

My mom made these last year, I think she saw the idea here. This year I added the chocolate and a gumball cherry. These look cute in a celephane bag tied with a cute ribbon.Finally, we made our Preschool Valentines. Just take cardstock and vinyl, cut hearts, punch holes and lace ribbon through it and stuff it with candy! This was in my family fun magazine a few years ago. This was especially fun since all four of my kids like to sew and lace.
Speaking of ideas, if you don't already check out BeDifferentActNormal, you should! She posts several times daily all the cute crafts, holiday decor, recipes, etc., etc. Plus, she happens to be my brother in law's cousin and I hear she is super nice.

Super cute ideas. I wish i had a kid old enough to be in preschool so they could pass these out. A couple more years, I suppose. I found you through Lorie's blog. And yes, she is very nice :)

Oh.My.Gosh. You are too much!!! I love everything about ALL of this stuff! SOOOO cute! Those ice cream cupcakes are to die for. I am having a little cupcake birthday party for London's 1st birthday this year and I may just have to make those. Are they made out of rice crispies or popcorn or what? And do you have any other cute cupcake ideas up your sleeve? Do share!

Where do you find that transparent vinyl? Would cellophane (for gift wrapping) work as well?

Super cute!!!
