Sweet as Honey


Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and it’s time to start thinking about the school valentines (if you haven’t already). I have some good friends who are beekeepers and sell their honey locally. I am not sure if you have ever been to your local Farmer’s Market, but ours always has honey.

My children’s favorite thing at the Farmer’s Market are the honey straws. They usually sell at five for a dollar, so I give my kids a dollar and they get two and Mommy gets the last one (just to be fair…I wouldn’t want them to argue, of course.) These yummy treats are also sold at the Amazon Marketplace and they are flavored….yum!

Anyway, when our beekeeper friends recently contacted us about buying honey, these honey straws came to mind as a great Valentine idea. Totally different than your usual candy and kind of fun to eat. Of course, my daughter was very excited about giving out something unique.

We quickly printed up little cards, punched holes to feed the straws through and we were done. The bee was downloaded online from a free clipart website.

These took no time at all to make and my daughter is happy as can be. All she has to do is sign them and they are ready for the Girl Scout Valentine party tonight.


Happy Creating!
