Each little valentine friend receives two candy bars, a milk chocolate and a cookies and cream candy, in a skinny cellophane bag. Using a pretty pink chenille stem aka pipe cleaner to close the bag is whimsical and is perfect for tweens. Wrap the chenille stem around a pencil or straw to make a little curl. Then add your personalized valentine sticker and you have an easy, inexpensive, and pretty valentine for anyone on your list.
It's a fun activity for us and luckily I've been able to resist the chocolate. The girls are so excited about their Valentine's Day party next week. I'm a little misty eyed and emotional about it. They're in 5th grade and this might be their last Valentine's Day party at school. My babies are suddenly turning into young ladies. Sigh.
Are you making valentines this week? What are they like?
