cuteness + confetti


In an effort to do something fun yet budget friendly with the kids for Valentine’s Day, we kept this craft very simple. The kids loved it – a colorful confetti mess combined with cupcakes – what’s not to love?! Using all of the empty Bonne Maman jars that we’ve been saving, I divided all the colors of confetti, and let Marie + Henry each make their own custom blend. They loved exploring the different textures, and making a mess – it was very beautiful though, so I didn’t mind.



Crafting is so enjoyable at this age (two and a half) – they are hungry for it, everyday. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, but I earn bonus points for anything messy. After applying glue to heart toothpicks, the kids dipped and stirred them into their jars of confetti, creating fun cupcake toppers. Click through to see more cuteness!






I think it’s safe to say they were really happy with the end result. Bottom line – we had fun, and for little to no cost! It’s the little things in life, you know? I’m getting used to crafting regularly, and I must admit – I’m really enjoying it!
