Now I would not called myself the Toni Spelling of crafting but I thought I could hold my own. That was until Pinterest came along......then I realized I had some work to do if I wanted to be in that category. Last year I did what every parent does, waits until the last minute to buy the store bought cards and candy. But this year is going to be different! I am on a mission to have the best Valentine's Day cards a 5 year can have. So with "K" in tow we took off to a bilk candy store to look for some inspiration.
I wanted something that would tie in with school/education. Since I feel education is so very important. But what?? Since the candy I would rather have my child eat in not the candy a 5 year old wants...LOL. Then I saw it...SMARTIES.
So we bought plastic candy bags from Party City for about $8.00 for 100 bags. The smarties we bout from Gooseberries (but you could buy from any store). I bought tags from Office Depot to print on. I put 3 pieces of candy in each bag with a tag that said "I think your smart".
I think they turned out great! I can't wait for "K" to take them to school.
I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!
