The first year that Nigel went to school I sent him in with homemade Valentines. And he came home with a box filled with store bought Valentines and treats. Yes, treats. I had no idea that Valentine's exchanges included treats. I only made that mistake once!!
Now, every year, I make a printable valentine, and we make treats to give. One year we made brownies, cut them into hearts and put a cherry juju heart on top. Mmm.
The next year, was brownies again. Though I suppose cupcakes might have been expected from the design we picked for the valentines.
This year my Lavender's class is not going to be brownies. She has sixty four allergies in her class. No, I'm teasing. Not that many. But she does have dairy, egg, wheat, tree nut, and coconut oil allergies. The list of food options is small so we are taking the easy route, fruit. I test drove all sorts of "pun-ny" sayings but ended up with the expected oranges and apples. Not too creative, I know, but will still make for a cute enough treat topper.
Once I made one (two :) ) corny treat toppers, I couldn't resist doing one for the non-allergy class as well.
They should attach wonderfully to this year's brownie selection, what e'er it turns out to be. And would you like it? It's here if you do.
For her sweet littles, Katie cut double heart cards with her Cameo. Then the girls glued them to doilies, embellished them, and wrote their names on the insides.
