Valentine’s Day Crafts Round-Up

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I don’t know about your family, but ours love that holiday! My daughter gets excited about the Valentine’s she gets to hand out to her classmates. My son is in middle school, so like most middle school kids, I’m sure he will want to get something for a girl, even if they are just friends. I think it’s pretty sweet. Besides writing out Valentine’s, my daughter also enjoys making Valentine’s Day crafts. So in honor of my daughter, I put together this round-up of Valentine’s Day crafts that are easy and fun!

Each of these crafts are very different and have varying degrees of difficulty. However, with that said, I am pretty sure my daughter (10 years old) could make each and every one of these crafts!

Kit Kat Cookies Recipe

My kids love when I make “fun” cookies. They define fun cookies as cookies that are not like your traditional sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookies. Instead I like to make Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. They loved those. I’ve been asked to make them several times. The funny thing about that recipe is, I bought pre-made cookie dough! It was so easy! I think the hardest part was unwrapping all those Rolo’s! I really can’t wait to introduce them to these fabulous Kit Kat cookies! I am sure they will go crazy for them. Especially Bella…she loves Kit Kat’s!

Heal Cracked Heels Quickly!

Feet are disgusting. I hate looking a them and I especially hate touching them or having someone else’s feet touch me. For me, getting a pedicure all year long is not something I want to spend my money on. I live in Michigan and it is only flip flop weather for like three months out of the year. So for those three months, I get pedicures. The rest of the year, my feet are rough and sometimes the skin on my heals are even cracked. It’s so embarrassing. Let’s put it this way, when I take my sock off, it sounds like I am rubbing it against sandpaper. It’s bad. But guess what…now I have the secret weapon on how to heal cracked heels quickly!! And it doesn’t involve getting a pedicure every few weeks!!

How to Heal Cracked Heels Quickly!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve tried all kinds of foot creams over the years that promise to fix your dry feet and guess what…they don’t work. Not only do they not work, but they smell kind of bad and they make a mess. On Christmas, my mother in-law got me an Amopé Pedi PerfectHeal cracked heels. I was pretty excited. I remember turning to my husbands aunt and saying, “I’ve always wanted one of these”! That got us talking about cracked heals and dry feet. What she told me next has completely changed my life. I’m not even joking.

Are you ready for this?

Are you sure?

OK…here it goes. The quick and easy way to heal cracked heels is…Aquaphorheal cracked heels! All you need to do is put it on your feet, put your socks on and go on with your day! I like to use my Pedi Perfect after my shower and put the Aquaphor on at night before I go to bed since I like to sleep with socks on.

The first day I used it, I was shocked how my feet looked when I woke up! They look and feel great! I highly recommend using Aquaphor to heal cracked heels! It really does work! You can pick up some Aquaphor at the link below. It’s a pretty good price!
