You Rock - Valentine candy bags


These are perfect valentines for your children to give out - especially boys.  No complaints from my boys, since there aren't little hearts with "love ya"  and "marry me?" on them.  Thankfully, I've found a better alternative.  You rock!  Visit The Crafts Dept. for instructions on making this valentine treat bags.

I plan on making a few of these for a Valentines Day tea we are having at our house with a group of little girls.  These are just adorable.  I can imagine them hanging in my dining room with little light up heart lights all around.  You can see the instructions at Skip to My Lou.  These are made out of cereal boxes, glue and glitter.

Fuschia and Pink Carnations - Dye Them Yourself

photo credit Lucas Allen

Remember the science lesson when you put celery in a glass of colored water to see how plants drink water?

The same principle applies to white carnations (and other plants for that matter).  They will turn into the color of water that you soak them in. 

Now, go grab some white carnations or daisies.  Make sure you trim them before you soak them in colored water.  Better yet, have your children try to guess what will happen when you put them in the colored water.  Enjoy these pretty little things.
