All week long we made fun crafts and yummy food to celebrate Valentine's day. 
We started on Wednesday but making our very own necklaces with ribbon and cut up paper straws. Kensi is all girl and loves wearing jewelry and making it was just as exciting for her. She enjoyed picking each straw piece from te pile, but did need some help feeding the ribbon through. Stringing is a great fine motor activity for little because it will help build the muscles in their hand that they'll use later for writing and drawing. 
Once we finished her necklace, she made one for Sully too! Trying to snap a photo is impossible, it’s always crummy with junk in the backgound!
On Thursday, Valentine's Eve, we made the softest no cook play dough. Just by mixing one part hair conditioner and two parts cornstarch, a few drop of food coloring and a whole bunch of glitter. This dough is very different from regular play dough and works well for squishing and using cookie cutters, but I wouldn't use this dough for building anything. It's so soft, the cornstarch almost gives it a melting element like oobleck, but without the messy runny consistency. 

We also started our dough for our cinnamon rolls that we gave out to our friends; we use Ree Drummonds' recipe with a maple flavored icing....we've been making this for a few years now and it's SOOO good. We make them for many of our holiday celebrations. 

After a long day of baking, we decided to bake a little more...we finished our night with homemade pizza. I used a linzer cookie cutter with a heart shape to cut three hearts out of every slice of pepperoni...don’t worry this is easy and quick by stacking a bunch of pepperoni together. You can  hammer them out in a cinch! 
One thing we always do if we really enjoy our food is ‘cheers’ it. We’ll ask Kensi if she likes din and if she does she gives us a happy food dance and a little cheers! {heart just exploded}

We hope all our readers had a fantastic Valentine’s Day....make sure to spread the love the month through!
