Valentine’s Day Coupons

Supplies:

  • 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.

Heart Sandwiches

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

Ingredients:

  • Make basic ice box cookie dough, and chill
  • Lifesavers candies
  • Plastic sandwich bags (one for each color)
  • A rolling pin

Directions:

  • 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

Supplies:

  • 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.
