After a little thinking, and a little inspiration, I decided to use my crocheted hearts for little Valentine goodie bags.
Since I only have 5 students in my class, and they had never heard of Valentine's Day until this week, I decided to really apply myself and make them some extra special Valentines this year! So I spent the morning sewing up these little muslin bags and zig-zag stitching the hearts onto them.
Each bag is half filled with a variety of candies - m&ms, chocolate, tootsie pops, cinnamon hearts, conversation hearts - and tied with a piece of ribbon.
Oddly enough, I also had this 4-pack of Chinese character stamps…? Don't remember why I bought them, but there happens to be one in the pack that means 'love', so I stamped it on the back of each tag.
I think my students will be excited to receive these, and hopefully it will make their first Valentine's Day in the U.S. special! I can't wait to give them out. :)
