Homeschool Valentines

Hello dear ones! Last week I said that chocolate is a must for Valentine’s, and I shared our chocolate study. Well, there is another candy must for Valentine’s: conversation hearts.

Conversation hearts were a big part of our preparations for the homeschool group’s Valentine’s party. Here’s how:

  • “Love never fails” Valentines

I found the printables here: http://www.notconsumed.com/2014/01/27/7-free-scripture-valentine-printables/
Then we just poured conversation hearts into sandwich bags and stapled the printables to the top.

  • Mini Conversation Hearts Cupcakes

I used a box cake mix and a mini cupcake pan to make 40 something cupcakes. I put a candy on top of each. This was simple and tasty.

We did a little experiment with the candies. We put candies in bleach, water, and in vinegar. The bleach completely dissolved and removed the color from the candy. The vinegar and water both turned the color of the candy.
