Did anyone else totally forget that Valentine's Day is next week? Just me?
Okay then. Luckily my kids have a way of keeping me on track. Yesterday my oldest daughter came home from school, class list in hand, and demanded that we go candy shopping. After all, "Valentine's Day is a big deal mom! A BIG deal!"
Well sure, who can argue with that?
The girls wanted to come up with something special to give their friends, neighbors and teachers, so we put our heads together and started brainstorming. I don't know if it's the massive amounts of snow piling up in our driveway, or the fact that the Frozen soundtrack has been playing non-stop in our house since November... but either way I'm loving this year's Valentines inspired by non other than our favorite snowman!
How cute is he? Seriously!
If I had to pick a favorite character from Frozen, it would definitely be Olaf. He's charming, lovable, and has excellent comedic timing! Everything you want in a Valentine right?!
There are so many cute ways you could package these Valentines! We decided to do jars of Hugs for the girls' teachers and dance instructors because according to my daughter, "Grown ups really REALLY like chocolate." And we put together little "build a snowman" kits for classmates and friends using sandwich bags.
The girls and I had a blast putting these together assembly-line style! They were pretty quick and easy to do and I love that marshmallows, pretzels, and chocolate chips are fairly inexpensive (and one bag goes a long way!)
So if you are still looking for an adorable treat for your kids to pass out on Valentine's Day, I have GREAT news for you! You can download your very own printable tags HERE!
Consider it my Valentine's Day present to you, just cause I love ya!
UPDATE: If you love Frozen, you'll love my Frozen birthday party!!
