Cute Little Valentines

10 Feb

The kids and I spent the morning working on some Valentines to give to their friends at Bible Study tomorrow.  Maddie was so happy to get into her makeup to make these sweet Valentines!

We just cut a wavy border around some construction paper, added a cute message, then the Madster got to put on her lipstick and give out some kisses!  I love them so much, I don't know if I can give them away!

Full disclosure: these are the Valentines Charlie and Maddie will be handing out to their friends.  We don't have enough time or lipstick to make that many, plus I just couldn't get Charlie to put on the lipstick!

We made some nice homemade Valentines last year, but didn’t get around to that this year!

If you are making last minute Valentines and you have a little girl willing to do it, these are quick, easy, and precious!

The kids and I made these wonderful, sweet white chocolate marshmallow hearts for a special Valentine’s Day treat.  They are so good and so easy to make!

Start with these cute strawberry-flavored marshmallow hearts.

Melt white chocolate chips then drizzle the melted chocolate over the marshmallows.

Aren’t they too cute?  These would be perfect for any Valentine’s party you are going to, and are fun to make with the kids.
