Sweet and Simple Valentine's Treat

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and as much as I wish it were about super romantic date nights and flowers and chocolates and all that, it's not. I have two daughters, so I have to share Valentine's Day with my girls. I'm okay with that, for now, Valentine's Day is a family affair.

Last year we had pancake hearts for breakfast and we've made pink cupcakes before, so this year we have are making a sweet and simple dessert. 

This is all you need and it's under $5. These wafer cookies are the BEST and I mean, who doesn't love some frosting with sprinkles. Yes! 

What my kids liked most about these is that they can make them on their own. You know how much kids love making their own desserts. This was fun for them and then they get to eat it.

My only problem was that I had to try and keep them from double dipping. In the future I will probably give them their own little dollop of frosting and let them double or triple dip away. I have to admit I was inspired by something similar I had seen on Pinterest, but they were dipped in chocolate. As good as everything is dipped in chocolate, Funfetti Vanilla flavored frosting sounded even better. 

So there you go, a super simple and sweet Valentine's Day treat for the whole family.

Dear Moms, Valentine's Day is coming up. If you're thinking, "YAY Date night!" Good for you! But if you're anything like me, then you're thinking, "Ugh, classroom Valentines!!" Haha!

I have two daughters with 24 students in each class. So I can't just buy a box of cards and a bag of candy, first of all it's never enough. Secondly, I always want to be a little different. I am always throwing something together super last minute because by the time I remember, it's the night before and the store has sold out of the one's my daughters not want, but need! This year I took a different route and got some cards from Peaceable Kingdom. If you haven't checked them out yet then you are in for a treat.

Peaceable Kingdom has super cool Valentine's cards that you can check out below, including Scratch & Sniff, Bookmarks, and Cootie Catchers. My girls were so excited to see that not only did Mom get these in the mail, but No other kids will have these!

So, I must be failing as a parent because my girls did not realize how cool Scratch & Sniff stuff was. I think Scratch & Sniff was more popular in the 90's because when I was a kid, you could scratch and sniff everything, but now, not so much. Either way, my girls thought these were So Cool! and we tested them out, a week later, they still smell pleasantly of strawberries. 

I've showed these to my girls once before and they loved it! These you can personalize with a Valentine's note on the inside, but the pictures, sayings and designs are just really cute. Kids will love these!

P.s. I had no idea it was called a Cootie Catcher. I now feel like a grown up that I know the name of this fun past time. 


You can't forget bookmarks. These are so cute and simple and my early readers love them. My daughter's fellow 1st graders will be able to put them to use right away since they have to read every night for homework anyway. 

So go check out Peaceable Kingdom for tons of Fun Stuff including, Valentine's Cards, Birthday Cards, Games and Stickers. Oh man, I loved stickers when I was a kid, their sticker collection is like a dream come true.
