Valentine’s Day Coupons
Five pieces of card stock (for each child) cut to the same size, with the words “This Coupon Good For” printed at the top.
One envelope for each child and a pen or pencil.
How To Play:
Have children create their very own Valentine’s Day coupons to give to family members. Give them suggestions such as, This Coupon Good For: A Hug, A Kiss, Taking out the Garbage, Doing the Dishes, Cleaning the Living Room, Helping with the Laundry, etc.
Heart Shaped Cake
You don't need a special pan if you have a square pan and a round pan that are the same dimensions across. Bake 1 square and 1 round cake. Then cut the round cake in half, and put each half against one of the square cake’s sides.
Build your sandwiches, then use a cookie cutter or knife to cut out a heart shape. Cut the remaining sandwich into a couple more pieces for a sandwich puzzle.
Stained Glass Cookies
Make basic ice box cookie dough, and chill
Plastic sandwich bags (one for each color)
A rolling pin
Pinch off small pieces of dough and roll into strips about ¼” thick. Use to make heart outlines on a foil-covered cookie sheet. Pinch ends together well. Start with simple shapes and then try more complex ones.
Sort the Lifesavers into plastic bags by color. Crush them with a rolling pin. Use to fill openings in the cookies. Bake at 375 ° F for 8 – 10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool completely, then peel off foil.
How Many Kisses
Large glass jar filled with chocolate kisses; small piece of paper; Valentine’s Day box; pencil.
How To Play:
Have children write their name on a small piece of paper and their guess as to how many kisses are in the jar. The child who guesses the right number, or comes closest, gets a heart sucker. The candy in the jar is then divided among the children. A variation would be that the winner takes the jar of candy home to share with their family.
