French toast+Heart cookie cutter = Valentines-French toast!
(we also ate the outside edges, because you loose nearly half the toast... however, if you're careful, you have a heart, and a heart outline... all cute!)
For dinner we had V-day mini-pizzas! I stacked several pepperoni on top of each other and cut them with a tiny heart cookie cutter. Then I sliced an entire baguette and put sauce, cheese, and a pepperoni heart on each piece and baked them about 350 until the bread got crusty and the cheese was melted :) Made two meals for us! (me, my husband, and our 2 yr old) (the idea came from here)
I also had some fun decorating for V-day this year.... something I hadn't done much of in the past.
I got inspiration from here
Only I did it with construction paper and a stapler... then just threaded the hearts (no balls) on jute/twine. The string was rough enough that the hearts didn't slide around too much.
Unfortunately I didn't get photos of either of theses items, but they were super easy and looked great! I'm saving both for next year!
Another fun thing my son loves is 'glittering'! Essentially, I cut out construction paper shapes and he squishes dollar store glitter-glue all over them. When they dry I hang them in our bay window to spiffy up the kitchen. He LOVES this activity, and it is fairly clean... especially when I lock him in his brother's high chair while he does it to confine the mess to a small area (score one for mommy!)
