Valentine's Day Treats

Being on vacation last week, I ended up busier that I thought I would be and did not have time to craft.  But, this week I am back at it.  Starting with my Valentine's Day Treats for my children.

These cute pencil and lollipop treats are for my daughter's preschool class.  They are easy for her to pass out and just adorable.

I found these multicolored pencils in packs of 8 in the dollar section of a local store.  I think they are perfect for little hands that are learning to write.
For my son's Pre-K class I decided on some simple hearts.  I printed his name on the labels, but removed them for the photos.  He does not quite have the stamina yet to sign his name 20 times in a row (and they had to be there today).

I had quite a supply of these lollipops lying around, so they were the inspiration for this craft.  I am sure the kids will be more excited about the candy than the craft. :)

I also had some of these rolls of candy and decided to turn them into Cupid's Arrows.  This is a very quick and easy Valentine to make and great for kids, teachers, or anyone.

I made several of these in a matter of minutes and will probably include them in the teacher gifts (which I will be posting in a couple of days).  You can make a wide variety of treats with just a few supplies and a little imagination.
