Being the mom of a preschooler, we are not at a loss for parties. Her class holds a party at least once a month, if not twice. Every holiday gets its own bash, and the parents have the opportunity to send in snacks for the kiddos to enjoy.
Since I've come across SO MANY CUTE IDEAS (pardon me, I get a bit excited about such things) on Pinterest, I love having a reason to try out the creative new pins I find. As opposed to being that weird 30 year old woman putting together Pilgrim Hats, Clementine Jack-O-Lanterns and Reindeer Cookies (which I, in fact, did).
So, for Little Chica's Valentine's Day Party (which is today), I made the following 2 pins:
AND THEY TURNED OUT SO GREAT! On past Pinterest projects, I've been thrown for a loop. Some are deceivingly more difficult than the pin lets on. There has been many nights of cursing, weeping and gnashing of teeth over a creative snack I tried to recreate from a pin, but all things went awry.
There is no pressure greater than volunteering a snack for your preschooler's class party, only to have it blow up in your face the night before.
As you can imagine, I'm glad these 2 lovelies came together somewhat easily. Here are some helpful suggestions from my experience:
