Valentines for Veterans

Thursday at our Relief Society activity, we made Valentines to send to the Veteran's home.  I was asked to come up with one of the four designs, and this is what I ended up with.  I had all the pieces ready to go and everyone just had to assemble them.  (This is what everyone did to save time.)  We made 100 all together.  They'll be receiving them today on their food trays!

We also decorated heart shaped cookies.  They were given those on Friday, while they were still fresh, and we've already received a letter saying how much they enjoyed them and how they brought smiles to their faces. It was a great activity!

Valentine Cookies

I made some Valentine cookies for my Primary kids today.  I'm going to let them frost and decorate one on their own.  Mistake?  Probably.  Will they love it?  YES!

RESULTS:  They absolutely loved it, and it is probably the quietest they've ever been.  I think we'll frost cookies every week!  ;)
