Valentine Favors

Just thought I'd share some simple Valentine favors I made for a recent Valentine's Day party we hosted.
I've made recycled crayons before (click here for my tutorial), but I was recently inspired by an old high school friend to make these heart shaped ones.

I used a silicone mold, which made for easy removal and clean-up.

I added a few chocolate kisses and a little tag to a baggie and voila! a little party favor full of love. :)

Another idea for an easy homemade Valentine would be to package some chocolate scented playdough in a small toss away container and attach a little heart shaped cookie cutter to the tag.

UPDATED: I just did a quick search in my Reader and saw that Frugal Family Fun made some crayon favors last month. Take a look at Valerie's link to see the adorable packaging she created for favors!

~Thank you for your comments!~

Last year, I used a similar mold from the target dollar section and it melted in my oven, like butter! Turns out it was for shaped icecubes, not the oven!

such a great idea, I was wondering what to do for Valentines day. My kiddos has lots of food allergies, dairy, eggs, and nuts. So it is hard to find something to give out when I know he cannot have it.
Thanks again looove your website

I did these last year with my boys. They are awesome. We then attached them to a simple picture to color of the internet. Happy Valentines Day!

I am definitely going to try the scented playdough.

They make the best favors ever. I think I get just as excited as E when I see them in a favor bag! Great job! Kerri
