Let Your Heart Shine

18 Jan

Our snowy, rainy, almost Valentine’s Day project:

Here’s how to make your own:

  • Cut a heart shape out of black or dark red construction paper.  Lay on the sticky side of a sheet of contact paper, or glue to a sheet of white tissue paper.
  • Cut various shades of red and pink tissue paper into small shapes and glue or stick inside the heart.
  • Hang on a window or door and let the sun shine through your heart!



Caramel Apples

18 Jan

These are the cutest little things!  Use a melon baller to scoop out balls of Granny Smith apples, insert lollipop stick, pat dry, then dip in caramel and assorted toppings.  (I forgot to dry my apples, so the caramel is sliding off!).

These are the perfect size for kids, both for making and eating.  Mini chocolate chips, chopped nuts, mini M&M’s, and sprinkles all make great toppings.  You can also dip the apples in melted white or semisweet chocolate.
