Sweet ways to have fun

"Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat." ~Author Unknown

Eat your heart out- Make everything from heart pancakes for breakfast to decorated Rice Krispie treats using heart shaped cookie cutters. No heart shape cutter? Just use M&M's or chocolate chips to outline a heart instead!

Look for love- Play the "I love you to pieces' game. Cut out a big heart from construction paper, tear it to pieces and hide the pieces around the house for kids to find and reassemble with tape when found.

Go cocoa- Nothing brings a touch of sweet to winter like hot cocoa. Putting it in a bowl instead of a cup allows the kiddos to arrange mini marshmallows into designs and also works on hand-eye coordination scooping them with a spoon before they melt. Or take the easy route, smoosh a large marshmellow, press a tiny heart cookie cutter into it and plop them in a cup of cocoa... yummy any way you use them!
