Snowy Day Valentine Craft




When you look out the window and see this:








You may decide it's a good day to stay inside and make a quick, easy Valentine craft.

Jake, Molly and I made these little Hershey's Kiss Gnomes for their classmates.





Tell me these are not the cutest things you've seen in a while!

BTW, you can really see the class size difference between public and private schools coming into play when one kid has to make 27 and the other 12.



All you need: Hershey's Kisses, felt, and googly eyes. I used a glue gun, which may or may not be toxic, but was very fast. We'll give each classmate 2 kisses: a gnome for looking at and a kiss for eating. For complete instructions,

go to Family Fun Magazine.


Now if my kids ever go back to school, they will be ready.

p.s. Don't forget to leave a comment on this post to enter my coffee giveaway.

OMG! and LOL! Maybe the slow one was paying an enormous amount of time getting those little suckers perfect.

Hi Anna,
This is perfect timing - I just realized that we should do some Vday prep for the class party...if it's not snowed out!

Kristin said...

Too cute! Thanks for you kind comments on my kitchen and for stopping by!

Super cute! But honestly - I think I'd eat both. Candy never lasts long around me...

Those are adorable! Guess want I'll be doing with my youngest tomorrow during an inevitable snow day!

Lynn said...

WAY cute! Do your kids know how fortunate they are to have a mom like you?

Kudos to you for making lemonade out of lemons! School is already cancelled for my kids tomorrow and they're calling for another foot here overnight on Tuesday... At this rate they won't go back until after President's Day. (I should mention their school is literally in the middle of a corn field.) Me? I work at a hospital... they never close. so hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to work I go... hehehe.

"which may or may not be toxic..."

Very sweet. I really should actually subscribe to Family Fun, rather than rely on a glimpse at the peds office. Love the plastic line too. Plastic is good for you, once it's cool, right?

Pamela said...

I love them! So charming.

Kate said...

Love the pictures - beautiful! Unfortunately there are no kisses in the UK to work with

Those are cute! Maybe we'll make something tomorrow. (If we're home.)
