Valentine's Day - Treat ideas - "Airplanes"

Me and my kids made these last year for Valentine's day goodies. On the back end of each one of these we tied a small banner with the To/From names...

Supplies needed per treat:
(1) Stick Gum – Watermelon
(1) Smarties
(2) Lifesaver mints
(1) Rubberband
(1) small piece of red/pink paper
(3) Little Heart stickers (or stamps)

Small piece of 1x4 piece of pink or red cardstock
12 inch piece of string
1/8-1/4th Hole punch

Prepare stick gum first by wrapping each piece of stick gum with red or pink paper, adhering edges together underneath gum. If you want to rubberstamp small hearts or images onto the stick gum, do that now.

Now, run rubberband throw the center of the two lifesavers, place smarties between the two lifesavers and resting on the rubberband. Insert end of stick gum into one end of rubberband, then into the other end.

If you want to decorate with little heart stickers, do that now.

Banner: Lastly punch two small holes on one end of cardstock, one at top – one at bottom. Tie the string through the two holes. Tie opposite end of string onto the tail end of the smarties/airplane. You can rubberstamp the TO/FROM onto the banner or handwritten.

Good luck and have fun!
