S’more Valentine Gifts

Miss M was disappointed that she didn’t get to make valentines like N did. And since there were only 3 teacher gifts to make (as opposed to almost 20 kid valentines) that would work much better for her small attention span. Poor girl, she is like her mom. I don’t get distracted easil… OOOOH look a fabric store!!!!!

The kids and I had already decided  what gift we were going to make for the teachers over the weekend. I printed out the labels. And M and I got started cutting. She was soooooo proud to use Mommy’s crafting tools.

But it takes a lot of muscle when you are trying to save time and make multiple cuts at one time. Look at that determination!

I found these super cute heart buckets at the party supply store. Into the buckets went a sleeve of graham crackers, 2 chocolate bars, and two big handfuls of homemade marshmallows. Of course you could use store bought, and it would be a great gift, but the whole family pleaded with me to make homemade this weekend. So the timing was perfect to use the homemade ones.

Finally a bit of clear cello wrap to make sure nothing falls out en route and some bakers twine to raise the adorable factor just a little more.

We repeated the process for N’s teacher, but we used a plain red bucket (N’s choice) instead.We Need S'more teachers like you - Teacher valentine

I am super happy with how they turned out. And so was Miss M. She brought the finished product to everyone in the house so they could see her handiwork.

Only one more valentine post for this year – Valentine dinner. Usually we do a super special family dinner. This year I was hoping to have a double double fondue dinner: two different cheese fondues and two different dessert fondues. However neither of the mini-Steams are all that excited about that idea. Sniff, sniff. So its back to the drawing board cook books for me!
