I always look forward to Valentines Day and all the little special goodies that it brings. I want to be able to enjoy the holiday this year with minimum costs but plenty of memories. This year I have decided to bring a favorite summer activity inside into the frigid cold month of February and warm it up with the sweet smiles of my little angels. The afternoon can be spent doing simple fun crafts found on Familyfun.com. I found several fun craft ideas and printable decorations there to assist in our card making. In the oven, heart shaped sugar cookies will bake filling the air with their sweet aroma. I am going to use the Pillsbury Ready To Bake Heart Shaped Cookies for easy preparation and to save time.
Then later in the early evening we can all take a quick trip out to the local Redbox and rent a movie the whole family can enjoy. Redbox has a wide variety of movies available in a vending machine that only cost $1 per rental. Its definitely a money saver, really fast and user friendly.
Dinner is going to consist of wide variety of well liked snacks that will be prepared by my daughter and myself. This way we all have are favorite food to share and enjoy. I’m going to pack the snacks in my picnic basket, spread a blanket out on the floor in front of the TV, and have a picnic in February while watching the movie together. After the movie we can exchange our homemade cards!
