Christmas and Thanksgiving are not the only big hitters in my house.
We like to countdown and do all kinds of fun stuff for everything.
Since Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I am in red and pink mode.
I am going to share that with all you lovelies today.
I call this activity “Heart Attacking”. When I was 12 years old some girls, from church, did this to me and I have never forgotten it. It is seriously such a nice way to tell someone you LOVE them.
This is how you “Heart Attack” Someone.
Start out by getting those littles ready for some crafting.
Cut out a bunch of hearts and write love notes on them.
I wrote some key “love words” on a dry erase boards to help the littles with spelling.
This was a BIG help to them.
Let them use stickers, crayons, markers, etc.
Let them have fun with it.
Glitter is always a plus too!
I don’t know a kid who doesn’t love creating with glitter.
It is way too fun!
We put a few hearts on sticks as well.
Once you have made all your hearts
decide who you will be heart attacking and make them a treat.
We decided to “heart attack” my grandmother.
We made her some yummy sugar cookies
I will share the recipe at the end of this post.
Now that your hearts and treats are done
it is time to be sneaky…….
We quietly taped hearts to her door
well as quiet as two little kids can be when they’re giggling and laughing
We also put the hearts on sticks in the ground near her walkway
We left her treat in a Valentine’s Day tub I purchased at the dollar store
and left it by her door step.
(some of the hearts have Hershey Kisses taped to them)
Now is the time to knock on the door and dash to the car.
This is seriously the most fun for littles. It teaches them about serving and showing kindness to others. This is a tradition of ours we do each year. I can’t wait for us to do it again.
Sharing some love with our family and friends is the greatest thing we can do
I hope you get a chance to do these for someone you love this Valentine’s Day.
Oh and before I go,
Here is the reciepe we made for my Grandma. These are THE BEST Sugar Cookies EVER!
We use them for every holiday.
Bake up some goodness and enjoy!
This prevents the dough from sticking to your hands.
I hope you get a chance to make them too!
Have a fabulous day and don’t forget to stop by and say hi!
