Candy Button Hearts

Every Valentine's Day I like to engage my kids in making something special for their classmates. This year we decided to make our own version of candy buttons. I found a simple recipe online for the candy, then had the kids cut their own hearts out of paper. We dried the candy on the hearts overnight, then attached them to colored construction paper. They were a big hit!

Arm knitting

Super Bowl Sunday + 2 skeins of fat yarn + YouTube + beverage & a snack = arm knitting!
This project was so simple, quick and fun. I tried out a few tutorials before I found the one that made the most sense. I may crank out a few for Xmas gifts this year.
