We’ve been making this and that for valentine’s day this week: some hearts, some secret grandparent gifts, and some popcorn.

party popcorn!

This popcorn falls under the category, “ridiculous things pinterest makes me do.” Also in the category are watermelon stars and temporary tattoos on bananas. Party popcorn–awesome name by the way–is melted white chocolate poured over popcorn and then covered in sprinkles. I added a little crunchy salt too, because it’s aways delicious.

My children were so unbelievably excited about making this and said many times, “this is the best thing you have ever made, ever.” I’m not a fan of popcorn or white chocolate, so I’m not the best judge, but I believe them. You can’t really go wrong when you pouring chocolate on something.  I found a few–printable!–pop-corny puns thanks again to pinterest.  A few staples later, Bob’s your uncle, and you’ve got 18 valentines ready to go!

    These are all great ideas, the hearts on the window are very effective . My daughter would love that popcorn – might surprise her with some after school.

    posts like this always make me a little sad that children here in England don’t do valentines at school. But I have been inspired to give my children valentines and they were thrilled – even the 14 year old!
