"Valentine You Warm My Heart" Hot Chocolate Valentine's for kids to make, perfect for all ages.

I find holidays so much easier now that there are inspiration sources like Pinterest and the abundance of blogs in general to provide cute ideas. I tend to have a great idea for say– Halloween– in April, then have nothing but a complete blank two days actually before Halloween! So, I love being able to scout around to help jump start my creativity. I don’t know exactly where I saw this idea, but I knew I wanted to put together a ‘kit’ of something with my daughter for her Valentine’s treats and this is what we came up with.

Long ago, I saw Paula Deen make these chocolate covered stirring spoons with her cute grandson {not that it was likely her original idea either} but I thought it would be a fun way to involve my four-year old in her Valentine goodies for her preschool class.

So we spent a cold, rainy day {thus the poor pictures} yesterday putting together her special treats. Here is what I used:

We dipped the red spoons in the {melted} candy melts then covered them with sprinkles–her job, and a very messy one at that!

Then we put together small bags of mini marshmallows together with some hot chocolate in a larger cello bag. {You can find these bags at craft stores or here}.

While the spoons were in the fridge to harden, we made up the printable for the top.

I just printed it out on regular cardstock, folded it and taped it to the top of the bag. To embellish it further I used a little twine on the top, because colored baker’s twine just makes things better, don’t you think? {buy it here}

So here they are….all set for preschool Thursday!
