Strict rules = Lovebugs

We got a note a few weeks ago asking parents NOT to send any kid of treats for Valentine’s Day.  I understand, but was bummed.  I’m a cookie/cupcake bringing mama and I was looking forward to doing something special for Valentine’s Day.  I even had a few recipes I was looking forward to trying.

This little pink note took the wind out of my sails.

So I was back to square one.  What to send in the place of sweets for my little sweet and her little buddies?  I went straight to Pinterest.  I found some pretty adorable ideas like this one, this one and this one.  (Ok, the last one involves a treat, but it was so darn cute…)

But in the end, none were really what I wanted.  Enter the love bug.  Jaia and I came up with the idea to fashion some love bugs out of pipe cleaners for all her friends.  Personalized.  Homemade.  Sweet.

A perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, according to Jaia who tells me they ‘were a hit with all her friends…even the boys and her teacher!’  Excellent.

Dan - the superhero lollipop is my favourite. I think that’s what I’m going to be for hallowe’en this year.

I can attest that the bugs looked great. I have some crafty girls!
