Green Your Weekend — 2.11.12

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. We don’t go crazy celebrating holidays around here, mostly because of my un-craftiness, but I am planning to make Valentines with my kiddos this weekend for my daughter to hand out in her class.

I wanted something that didn’t create too much waste, and didn’t include candy. I saw these cute heart shaped melted crayon Valentine’s last year and wanted to make them with my kids, but could never find a mold that would work. Finally, my friend Christianne at Little Page Turners made some and said she used a mold from Target Dollar Spot. Perfect! Went there yesterday to pick one up, and got the last one in the bin! So, hopefully they’ll work and we’ll have a fun time making Valentine’s together this weekend!

Here’s the posts I enjoyed this week:

Color My World Melted Crayon Valentine’s and Free Printable from Little Page Turners

Toilet Paper Roll Valentine Stamps from Rust and Sunshine – these are super cute and easy too!

How to Plan a Snow Picnic from Simple Bites – love this idea, if we had any snow on the ground (can’t believe I’m saying that!)

How I Stock My Natural Medicine Cabinet from Keeper of the Home – Such a great resource!

The Dangers of Artificial Sweeteners — Are They Safe for Kids? from Kitchen Stewardship – I love all the research Katie puts into here posts (because then I don’t have to do it!) And this one if full of important information about artificial sweeteners.

What I’ve Been Babbling About

I hope you have a great Green Weekend!

    Oh, these are great links. I read/shared on Facebook the link about artificial sweeteners. So many of my friends think if something is “sugar free” that’s better for them…but they never take the time to research the ingredients, let alone read the label!! Have a great wekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
