Last year, we made a snack to go with our valentines, but this year we're taking it easy. We decided to give out stickers instead. At 18 packs for $1 at the Dollar Tree I really can't complain (currently, I think there are 17 children attending the party - #nailedit). I also ordered his cards from cardstore.com again. I loved the way they turned out last year and I'm just as pleased with the ones this time around. We opted for the pirate theme, which came with four different pirates. I snagged them during a sale and got each set of four for about $1.
We're also taking a snack to the party so we plan on making heart-shaped cut out cookies. I don't think I have it in me to do icing since E is going to help me decorate. Instead, we'll only do sprinkles. I let E pick them out at the store and he chose an appropriate pink sprinkle as well as a Mardi Gras themed one (must be his wild side). Honestly, I prefer them without icing anyway. Less sugar means I can eat more without feeling sick. If you're in need of a good cut out cookie recipe, try out the one here. It's my aunt's recipe and I've been using it successfully for years.
Finally, I wanted to share a link. A friend of mine made these ridiculously cute valentines for her kids to hand out. I'm not nearly this crafty, but if you are, I highly recommend checking out her post for details.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!
