Since Bubba is not in school yet, he doesn't have classmates I can make treats for, so I try to make little goodies for his cousins and friends when there's a holiday or special occasion.
When Wal-Mart had their After-Christmas Clearance, I picked up several packages of flavored lip balms that were originally $5 for a pack of 6, but marked down to $1.25. SCORE! (I'm all about those Clearance tags! :p). I also snagged some packages of Ring Pops. The Christmas package came with 4 pops--two of which were marked with Christmas, and two that weren't. These were marked down to $.25 ...or 4 Ring Pops! Even though I was only using the two non-Christmas Pops, that's still $.12 per Pop! Again--SCORE!
So, using some 4x6 clear bags, paper shred, and tags that I created in Photoshop, I came up with these to give to Bubba's friends from Church:
I try to avoid giving candy treats if I'm making them for kids that Tali attends Primary with. (We attend a Tongan-Speaking Ward (or congregation) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Primary is the organization for children from 18 months to 11 years old.) When I saw the lip balms, I knew that they would be SUPER cute for V-day.
Treat #2: I used the Ring Pops to make these for Bubba's Primary Teachers. I saw this online and thought the wording was cuter than anything else I had seen for Ring Pop Valentine's Day goodies so I created one of my own tags.
I hope these two simple treats give you ideas for your own goodies. What are you making for Valentine's Day?
