Here’s a great playdate for your kid – no matter what age! Host a Valentine cookie decorating playdate. You’ll need:
- sugar cookies
- cupcakes – here’s a great recipe!
- cupcake toppers – you can download some at Skip to My Lou
- conversation hearts and/or m&m’s
- fun decorations – handmade is always better than store-bought!
For the place mats, I just used a piece of white card stock and attached a foam heart with the child’s name written on it. On the right is a little bowl of pink icing, with a popsicle stick for spreading.
One fun decoration is this little pennant. All I did was cut triangles out of card stock and scrapbooking paper and strung it all together with a piece of ribbon.
Set the kids free to create their magic and see what you get!
