TGIF and Happy Friday! 13 days until Valentines day and you may need some fun ideas. Have fun and enjoy!

And for classroom treats for kids, you can’t ever go wrong with marshmallow pops in Valentines colors. Make a batch for the whole class in an hour or so and wrap them in cellophane or a ziploc with the zipper cut off. Tie some ribbon around it….
add a sweet tag and you’re go to go!
Ben wanted to say something sweet to his Valentines….  not.
The dynamite was made from Rollo’s candy rolled with red paper.  The wick is a bit of black licorice and we tied up the bundle with some black pipe cleaner (because that’s what I had on hand.)  This Valentine could have read, “You’re Dynamite!” or “You’re a Blast”…. but Ben wanted it to read “You’re the Bomb.”
