I was never a big fan of Valentine’s Day, but I find that I enjoy it much more with kids. Now it’s about heart shaped fruit kabobs and Valentines Day crafts, not flowers and fancy restaurants and that’s fine with me! These felt Valentine’s Day baskets are quick and inexpensive to make. They are fun to make with kids as long as they have some help with the scissors and hot glue. They can decorate them however they like… think glitter! They can be filled with candy, snacks, toys or anything you would like.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I started planning a menu of romantic dinner ideas I can make at home. We don’t usually go out on Valentine’s Day. It can be hard to get a babysitter, restaurants are crowded and the menus are often limited. Instead, we usually get dinner ready, put the kids to bed a little early and have a nice dinner right at home. Here are some romantic dinner ideas for Valentine’s Day or any date night at home.
I admit it. I have a slight obsession with pillows. I love how changing up the pillows on my sofas and chairs can change the whole room seasonally or for holidays. Before I learned to sew, I spent a good amount of money on decorative pillow covers. Now that I can make them myself, the sky is the limit!
This chocolate berry snack mix with these Valentine’s Day printables is a berry sweet Valentine’s gift for anyone. Print out the bag toppers and tags and you will have homemade Valentines for the whole class in no time plus one for the teacher! I took these picture earlier and couldn’t stop eating the snack mix. Luckily I packed up enough for my daughter’s class first.
Whether you are looking for a Valentine’s gift or a yummy treat, these M&M cookies fit the bill! To make as a gift, layer the ingredients in a mason jar and attach the printable tag. They are a perfect gift for teachers or anyone who deserves a thank you. They bake up light and crunchy. My husband says they taste like bakery cookies.
