My Valentine Countdown/Hide & Seek (freebies)



Between my BiRThdAy WeEK GivEaWay ExTRaVaGanZa, the lizard getting sick and celebrating my birthday...I totally waited until last minute to finish my Valentine countdown.

I had big plans to make this super cute 'advent' style calendar.   

NOPE.  

So plan B was to come up with a fun little treat for the kids each day.

Here's what I used:

pipe cleaners (cut in half), clear treat bags and numbered heart tags

 

The idea is to hide their treat and have them find it.  
My kids love hide and seek so this is great for them.  
Plus, it may give me 5 minutes peace :)
We are starting off with lollipops (heart shaped to be exact)

 If you wanted to do something like this yourself...

but don't have the pipe cleaners and/or clear bags.  

Use some ribbon and plastic snack bags.  

Or twisty ties and saran wrap. 

 

I just think it's a fun treat for the kids 

and it gives them something to look forward to each day!

 

**Oh and if you need heart tags..here you go!**

days 1-6, days 7-12, days 13-14 & blanks

Cute! I love that you are going to hide them, great idea : )

I'm under a BLIZZARD WARNING at the moment, so if you don't hear from me for a couple of days that would probably be why : )
