Around the end of January, my girls catch the Valentine's Day bug. They love the holiday as much as I do, especially their class parties with homemade mailboxes stuffed full of notes and treats from friends.
For their class treats, we always try to come up with something different each year. Last year, we filled glassine bags full of their favorite Valentine's candy and affixed cute foldover labels printed with their picture and a Valentine's message. My friend, Jennie, made clever ones last year.
This year, however, Charlotte informed me that she absolutely did not want a photo of herself on her treats for school. Trying to convince an almost-7-year-old that there is nothing cuter than her photo on candy was fruitless (evidently some teasing boys got the best of her!). We needed an alternate idea that was equally as clever. Thanks to an idea from Family Fun, this year's treats are sure to be a hit.
This project became a family affair. My husband traced the templates (click on the link below for your own) onto the red and black foam paper and the girls cut out the lips and moustaches. I was in charge of affixing the labels to the lollipop sticks (click on the link below to print your own labels on adhesive paper).
I hope you enjoy!
