Valentine Treats for Kids!

Happy Valentine's Day coming up!!!!! I truly LOVE this holiday and it's such a fun one for kids. Here are the treats I made for the boys to take to school. The Sock Monkey is spreading his *warm fuzzies* by giving hearts. Our 6 yo wanted to take these. The sucker wraps are for our 3rd grader's class. He's a sucker for treats, that's for sure!

I used Stampin Up!'s Sock Monkey stamp set for the treat bag. I used Real Red paper to cut out the Top Note Sizzix die cut. I scored and folded it in 1/2 to put over the top of the bag. I stapled it all together, then used the sock monkey and the oval scalloped sentiments to cover the top of the staples. Kids can help with this one too.....our 6 yo counted out 10 hearts for each bag.

I got this fantastic idea for these sucker wrappers from my Stampin Success magazine. I used Real Red paper and ran them through my cuttlebug Heart Block folder. I used my SU 1 3/4's and 1 3/8's circle punches to cut out the hole in the red, and the Chocolate Chip ring. I used a generic heart punch for the creamy caramel heart and the SU Small Heart punch for the little red hearts. I used glue dots to hold the wrap around the sucker stick.

I hope the boys classmates will think these treats are super SWEET!

I think the sock monk3ey stole my candies, I know I really look forward to those every year in February. Wow, those sucker holders are something else! You are one crafty mama and the kiddos are going to appreciate those.
