Valentines Crafts and Family Day!


For my daughters preschool class we made these really cute Bubble Guppies sucker valentines, they have cute little jokes on them like:
What time did Gil go to the dentist?
Tooth Hurty
They are really cute.You can find the printable template here on Nick Jr.
My son of course went with the store bought valentines and we just taped suckers to them. You can get a bag of 30 heart shaped suckers for 1.49 at Shoppers Drug Mart :)


Then for the teachers we made 100% peanut free Wowbutter oatmeal cookies with a cute little card that says:
Thanks for making me one smart cookie!
They are really going to like them and they are 100% safe to have at school. Here is where you can print out the card. Sweet Metel Moments.


And here is the Wowbutter Oatmeal cookie recipe I have created for this special occasion!


Wowbutter Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup margarine
1 cup Wowbutter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups quick cook rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Directions

  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Scoop 1 inch balls and put them on baking sheets. These are drop cookies so there is no need to squash them down. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.
 I love peanut butter cookies but you can never send them to school due to all the crazy allergies kids have these days. So this recipe is something I hope everyone can enjoy! If you haven't tried Wowbutter yet you can find it in most local grocery stores and it can also be ordered off Amazon.

 
We are celebrating a new Holiday here in B.C. called Family Day so we are going to lounge around and enjoy each others company  and do some sweet valentines day crafts to decorate the house. I found a ton of ideas on Pinterest by typing in Valentines Day! What are you doing today?
