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!
