Pink Hot Chocolate

What’s better than hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day?  PINK hot chocolate of course!  In the spirit of all things love, skip the food coloring and color it pink with an all-natural beet juice.  Top it off with some whipped cream and marshmallows and enjoy!


Assorted Paper
Needle and Thread
Hole Punch

Instructions: Fold 3” to 6” paper squares in half and cut a half heart from the fold.  Thread needle and string hearts together through the top center of the folded paper hearts.  Using hole punch, thread needle and string through the opposite sides of the paper.  Add as many hearts as it takes to reach your desired length.


Folding Envelope Hearts



Instructions: Cut a large heart from paper that has a blank and patterned side — wrapping paper works.  Write a little love note – or have them draw a picture.  Lay the heart with the patterned side down and the bottom point sticking up (the heart will be upside down).  Fold the top down just above the middle.  Turn envelope so flap is at the top, and seal with a sticker.
