Creative Valentine Box #13 - Valentine's Wii!

My 4th grade daughter made this Wii Valentine's Box all herself and I thought it was a fun idea! This is about as easy and simple as it gets and I loved that she was able to do it 100% herself...

Supplies Needed:
Smaller Sized Cereal Box
Scissors
White Butcher Paper/Wrapping Paper (Regular Paper can work as well)
Tape
White or Red String
2 Rectangular wooden blocks (or empty boxes)
Marker
Paper Hearts, Foam Heart Stickers or other Decor

Directions:
1. Wrap the Cereal box and 2 Rectangular Wooden Blocks with white paper
2. At the end of the cereal box, cut a rectangular opening for Valentines to be able to be inserted.
3. With a marker, draw the buttons and words on the Wii remotes to match.
4. Tape or glue paper hearts and foam stickers on the Wii and remotes as desired.
5. Tape String to the end of the remote to symbolize the cords.  My daughter did it in a big loop.

Simple, make it yourself, and cute!  Happy Valentine's Day!

Cute Homemade Valentines for School Kids

Last year I realized we had moved to a very creative area when my son received 4 homemade Valentines that were adorable and fairly easy {Although not nearly as easy as those Dollar Store Valentine Boxes!}.  Had to share with you all!

 "I Chews You!" with a bag of gumballs
 "You are one in a Minion" with a Minion Twinkie (Some of the cutest, but way more intricate, Minion Twinkies I've seen were here!)
 "Valentine of all the fish in the sea... You're the one for me!" with a baggie of goldfish
"So Glad We're In The Same School!" With a baggie of Swedish Fish. Notice that the card is designed like a fishbowl to represent a "School of Fish"

Ice Cream Christmas Tree

This is so cute and quite easy for you to serve at your family, work, church or school parties.  Simply use a cookie sheet and cover it with tinfoil. Then scoop large balls of mint chocolate chip ice cream to create a christmas tree.  The top  row will have 1 ball, the second row will have 2 balls.  The third row will have 3 balls, and so on. After you have rows of 5 or 6 ice cream balls (the size of your cookie sheet and the size of the ice cream balls will determine how many you can fit), your tree will be complete.  Then scoop two ice cream balls of chocolate icecream and place them at the bottom of the tree lined up vertically to look like a trunk.

Make sure you keep this in the freezer until you are ready to serve.  Makes a super cute treat and an incredibly easy way to serve ice cream to the crowd quickly! Thank you to our cousin, Cathy, for the cute idea!

Merry Christmas and check out some of our other Christmas ideas while you are here!
