Valentines Galore

 Valentines Lunch
Let's see... We have "hidden" under the Bologna Cheese Lunch Punch Sandwich a Butterfly Rice Krispie Treat Mya made. My friend found these yummy gummies on Amazon and it's a huge 5lb bag of Alphabet Gummies  we also have heart shaped marshmallows and sliced carrots w/ ranch for dipping.

and when my DD opens her  lunch this is what she will find 1st

I so wish I could be a fly on the wall.. she is going to be so excited over the rose :)

Hope everyone has a great Valentines w/ there loved ones!!

We also did Valentines Gifts see my posts here where we really used a "muffin tin":

Valentines Crayons & Teacher Gift

I have 2 gifts to share :)
So, Mya's school doesn't allow for candy to be passed out for Valentines this year we decided to do heart shaped crayons for Mya's class. 
 I got 2 silicone heart ice trays @ Target . We recycled our crayons - and cut the paper off - broke them into small pieces so they would fit nicely in the molds/
Preheated the oven to 225°F ... Stuck the trays on to a cookie sheet so we didn't have any spills and it would be easier to put in the oven. 
We baked the "new" crayons for about 8 mins until they were melted, then added more crayons to it to fill it to the top and baked again another 5 mins.. (or until completely melted)
Cool for about 20 mins or so... and just pop them out of the silicone.

We then gathered our other materials so we could finish the final project
  • Scissors & Hole Puncher
  • Colored Paper
  • 24 Tulle Bags
  • Marker
" You make my world colorful"  Love Mya  - Each kid will receive 2 crayons

Now on to the next Gift for Mya's........
I really liked how this turned out... but I would have loved to have a little more detail... maybe next time.. 

  • Heart shaped Picks
  • Flowers
  • Pencils I purchased 72 ct @ Walmart.. and I used about 50
  • Rubber Bands

Finished project:

I placed the pencils around  the pot  and held it together w/ rubberbands that way Mya's teacher can still use the pencils once the flowers die

Pita Bite Pizza

Pita Bite Pizza

I found these yummy Pita Bites w/ Sea Salt @ Sams Club! I have tried it w/ cream cheese and Strawberry Rhubarb spread from Tastefully Simple - delicious! I have tried it many ways but this.. was a huge hit in my house by all!

I preheated the oven to 325°F -  Added Pizza sauce, Mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperoni - and I baked it until the cheese melted.. I would say 6-8 mins... Oh my goodness... talk about your tastebuds being overly excited ..haha  They were  thanking me :)

The kids really enjoyed there lunch...that day

In case you need a visual on the box of Pita Bites so it's easier ( I know visuals are always better)


If anyone tried something different please share!
