Day #11: Fun Stuff for the Kids

I like to put fun things in the kids' lunch boxes for special days, and I found some neat Valentine surprises recently at our local five and dime.


Got to *love* the Diva Sweethearts!  The scratch and sniff stickers by Peaceable Kingdom will make any chocolate lover smile.


Pez!  Pez candies are so much fun!  I have already tasted a Valentine lolly by the Hammond Candy Company.  Hammond makes some of the most delicious candies in the world, and I always buy some for my grandmother for Christmas.


All ready to place in a lunchbox or backpack!

Here is some Pez comic relief from Seinfeld.

Until next time...

  1. I sent our daughter her valentine goodies her favorite dry roasted almonds she asked for no candy What????!!lol

  2. What a sweet surprise to find in your lunchbox. You're such a fun mom.

    That episode of Seinfeld cracks me up. I always laugh just seeing Elaine laugh like that.

  3. Hi Ricki Jill Sweetie...
    What a beautiful surprise for the kids lunch boxes. I imagine they will be peeking on their way to school just to see, what lies in wait for them. Love the little Pez container, will have to check and see if I can find some for the grands. That would be a lovely treat.

    Love that Seinfeld episode. Laughter is contagious, and at the time it seemed so funny to Elaine. I found myself laughing at her, and I can't figure out how Seinfeld didn't laugh just watching her. SO darn cute. Thanks for sharing that one.

    Have a beautiful weekend sweetie and Happy Valentine's Day. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  4. Wow you are really one of a kind Ricki! Having Valentine's presents to your daughters. :) if I will become a mom, I will surely follow practice of yours :)happy weekend!

  5. Really unique stuff! Very sweet! and happy kids I'm sure.
