Se7en Hearts and Then Some More…

It is that time of year when everywhere is going heart mad and so today we joined the fray…

  1. Scrap Heart: Because everyone needs something pretty. Make a heart shape out of florist wire (it is soft and bendy), cut fabric scraps into strips, tie them onto your heart frame, the more the merrier.

  3. Bark Heart: Because everyone needs a little natural factual. Set my boys lose to carve some bark mulch from the garden.

  7. Egg Heart: Because everyone needs breakfast. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to remove the middle of the bread and then pop an egg into the heart and fry it like a regular egg – just for fun – eggs in toast!!!

  9. Sweet Heart: Because everyone needs a little sweetness. Thread your sweeties onto a wire heart.

  11. Jelly Heart: Because everyone needs a bite-size treat. Make your jelly using half the recommended liquid then use a small cookie cutter to cut the hearts out and stack up different shades of jelly.

  13. Cookie Heart: Because everyone needs a bit of chocolate. Cream 1/2 a cup of butter and 1/2 a cup of caramel brown sugar and 1/2 a cup of sticky brown sugar together. Add an egg to the mixture. Beat in a cup of self-raising flour (plain flour + 1 teaspoon of baking powder if you don’t have any). Finally, tip in a 100g of good quality melted chocolate and beat the mixture. Bake at 180 degrees for five to ten minutes. YUM.

  1. Lovely fun. Happy Valentine’s Day. We’re not doing much this year because Chinese New Year falls on Feb. 14th. I don’t have much energy for much at all these days, but the kids don’t notice if things are simple or off the wall. They celebrate anyways!

  2. Hay JK, You will indeed have a lot to celebrate next weekend… and tell me can’t kids generate an occasion out of thin air!!! Luckily!!! You have a great and restful week!!!
