Valentine Freebies and DIY Heart Shaped Chips

Getting excited for Valentines Day!! I just made them some hearts.  OK, a lot of them.  Enough to give one each day the 1st through the 14th of February for both Lexi and Jack.  I am planning on sticking them in pockets, in the car, in backpacks.  Just about any and everywhere I think they will look.  I am hoping it will remind them during their day how much I love them.  Each one can turned in for a piece of Valentine Candy.

Download free Valentine Hearts for a limited time on TheYummyFactory Facebook Page!!

Or saved to play games.  Like Tic Tac Toe, Catch, or a Game of Toss with Heart Shaped 50- 100- 500 taped to the tile. 🙂

We (I actually mean, my husband) made Mexican food last night.  (My very Favorite!!  Hoping to get recipes down to blog about it.  Too tasty not to share with you!)  Anyway,  I made heart-shaped tortilla chips from regular corn tortillas.  Soooo ridiculously easy, yet, the kids had so much fun with them, you would have thought I invented sliced bread.  I see a lot more shaped chips in our near future.  Here is one of Lexi’s Heart Chips with her dinner stacked on it. 

This is how I made them:

Easy Right?  Now go make some.  You’re kids will think you are a genius!  They are too YUMMY not to!

Valentine’s Day Hair Goodies and Chocolate Dipping

Valentine’s Day is going to be here before we know it.  I am throwing 4 different Valentine parties, and thought I better get my inner Cupid out!!

My Dollar store flowers turned cute little hair goodies for Ella Rose

Tulle Hearts  all done in the hoop for Lexi Monet

Pink marshmallows!  I had to Chocolate dip them.  So easy, and the kids love them!

OK, so I made a few…  Hundred.  What?  Everyone needed one.  🙂

Carmel Chocolate Apples for the Adults.  I find carmel a little challenging.  It always gets the best of me.  But, I press on, and get them done.  It’s for the greater good.  🙂

The Chocolate I use for dipping I get at a cake supply store (Pila’s Pantry in Norco, Ca)  It is smoother than the Wilton brand, and they have so many colors available.  I am not sure if they mail order, but I am sure you could talk them into it.  Really nice family owned shop.  Great customer service.  🙂

Cutie Candles and Baby Changing Station

Cutie Candles

How fun are these! All you need is a Cutie and some Olive Oil!

Cut a Cutie, a.k.a. Clementine Orange, around the middle, peel in half, cut a cute shape out of the top,  (hearts would be so cute for Valentine’s Day) use the pulp stem in the bottom half as a wick, fill with olive oil, light the pulp, and enjoy your little Cutie candle.  Will burn for hours.  Do not leave unattended, and always be careful playing with fire.

Diaper Changing Station done in the hoop

Perfect little gift for Baby!  Diaper and Wipe Carrier done in one hooping!
