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:

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.
