I don’t know about you Gracious Girls, but sometimes Valentine’s Day can be too sweet.
Just thinking about it gives me a toothache.
So when it comes to my children’s Valentine’s Day, I like to think beyond the candy wrapper or box of conversation hearts. In the past years we’ve sent along these soaps, but this year we’re adding a pop of color – a great idea we picked up from the one and only Martha or should I say, Ms. Stewart?
This little V-Day activity is a great way to use up those broken crayons we all have rolling around.
First, we unwrap the crayons and sort them in bowls by color.
Next we break them up into little pieces by putting them into plastic bags and, with a stainless meat tenderizer, chop, chop, chop.
After they are broken into little pieces, the girls put them into the heart-shaped molds – their favorite part.
We pop them into a 350-degree oven and bake until melted apx. 7 minutes.
Let cool. Pop out.
Wrap, tie with a ribbon and you have sweet (sans the sugar) sentiments!
We LOVE these and so will your dentist! What’s your favorite sugar-free way to say Happy V-Day?!
