Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
I’m going to have some low-cost DIY fun with the kids.
Breakfast will be red pancakes (will attempt to make them heart-shaped) oatmeal with red sprinkles.
Some crafts after schoolwork.
My daughter woke-up on the wrong side of the bed. She thinks Valentine’s Day is a national holiday and should be a no-school-work day! LOL! That is NOT going to happen. She also has her first track practice tonight, which she does not think should occur on Valentine’s Day.
So, Yes, she needs to do schoolwork and go to track, but I’m still going to try to make the day fun.
We are all wearing red or pink shirts too. 🙂
This evening I have two single friends coming over (one has her two girls with her) and we are going to make heart-shaped cheeseburgers, strawberries dipped in chocolate and some other yummy, fun stuff for all the kids. 🙂 Please share if you have some craft ideas for children 6-11.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Apples
We had some leftover Valentine’s candy (yeah, it was lost or it would have been long gone) and we also had some strawberries that needed to be eaten. So, I melted all the chocolates, swirled them together (white and red on the bear made cute design) and we dipped some strawberries and apple slices in it. The swrawberries worked better. I think the chocolate didn’t cling good to the apples because the apples were fridgerated. Will have to try them room temp next time. Regardless, they were YUMMY! 🙂
