Minute To Win In - Valentine's Day Edition

I have a fun NEW RELEASE for you today!  I am so excited about it that I am giving some away!!!

One summer my kids and I were hooked the hit show Minute To Win It. That summer for a family night, I put together a mini Minute To Win It game night and my kids loved it. They ask all the time to play so I decided to make a Valentine’s Day Edition this year. They are going to FREAK with excitement. I have put together some classic games and have come up with a few of my own for this kit. All games can be played with regular everyday items, but the game becomes even more fun when all items are festive to the holiday. 

I created game cards to make the games go a smoother.  All the information needed to play the games are on the cards.  The game cards include:  materials needed, objective and directions to each game.  I printed my game cards on cardstock and laminated them for durability.

I also put together some treat tags and water bottle labels for before, after or even during the game.  My kids will be asking like crazy to eat the candy during the game so these treat bags will be perfect to give them.  This way they can munch on the leftover candies during the game.  And for my family water is a must after some of the games are played so why not make our water bottles festive as well.

Like I said earlier, I am so excited about this new kit that I am giving 5 sets away to one of you.  Here's how you can enter:

You've Been Hugged - Free Printable

My two older kids have fallen in love with the fun holiday tradition of  "You've Been Booed" or "You've Been Elfed."  They have been asking me if we could start one for Valentine's Day.  After a quick search on Pintrest, I found that there was very little to choose from in this department for Valentine's Day so I came up with my own and wanted to share it with you.  

I made the image black and white on purpose.  I am all into this fun idea of passing along a Valentine Hug, I just don't want to waste my colored ink on it.  {WINK!  WINK!}

To go along with our "HUGS" I made chocolate covered popcorn - one of my family's favorite.  Here's how I make mine.  I pop a ton of popcorn - like 5 big bowls full.  Then I sort out the popped from the non-popped kernels.  Next I butter and salt mine like I normal would because I love salty/sweet treats.  My aunt just barely gave me this tip and it makes a HUGE difference in the final product - so yummy!!!  Then I lay out wax paper on my kitchen island and pour out all the buttered popcorn in an even layer.  

Then comes the fun part, I melt Wilton Chocolate Melts in red and pink.  (A quick tip, I melt them in a large Ziploc bag so I do not dirty up another bowl.)  After the chocolates are melted, I snip a very small corner off of the Ziploc and drizzle the chocolate all over the buttered popcorn.  I let the chocolate sit to harden up.  Finally the popcorn is ready for eating.

I bagged the chocolate popcorn in gallon size bread bags and tied with some cute Valentine's Day ribbon.  I have printed off my "HUGGED" sheets with instructions and now just have to wait for dark to deliver.  

This is such a fun tradition to participate in.  I hope that your family will have as much fun as my family will tonight as we deliver our "HUGS" to our friends and neighbors.

It comes as a black and white image on one side and the instructions on the other side.
