Sweet Treats

Today's "scheduled" post is the treats for the kids at school. I found this kit in my stash that made 15 of these little favors and thought it was time to use them up and move them on. My son liked the idea so win-win. I made the first one with a lot of guidance from him and then walked him through the rest step-by-step.

We've recently ventured into Shrinky Dinks so it was fitting to include a Shrinky Dink "charm." This little love bug from Pink Cat Studio was perfect. I sized and printed the bug on plain typing paper and then traced it onto the Shrinky Dink Paper and we colored them. Very exciting stuff since he got to use Mommy's colored pencils to do it. I opted (and he agreed) to put each child's name on theirs using PTI's Simple Alphabet. I think it makes it a little more exciting for the kindergarten age group. The heart sticker was a last minute addition by him.

We couldn't forget the back. So we took the heart from TT:Valentine and "signed" it with the Simple Alphabet.

I love how they turned out, but more than that I love that he wanted to be so involved in the process.
