Cupid's Arrows

Ha! Valentine card for both kids to hand out, DONE! Card Boxes made and decorated, DONE! Now for the "goodies!" I saw this idea in a magazine a few years back. I think it may have been Family Fun. The original idea was to use those cherry flavored jelly hearts. But I am a sucker for cute stuff, and these heart-shaped marshmallows just screamed cute!

These were fast and easy to make. Here is what you need.

Cupid's Arrows

A bag of stick pretzels
Heart-shaped marshmallows
Clean kitchen scissors
Small cup of water
Paper towel

First, put one marshmallow on to one end of the pretzel. Be careful not to push too hard or you will break the pretzel, or lose the shape of the marshmallow.

Next you are going to take your scissors and cut a "V" shape into the marshmallow top. As you work, the scissors will get sticky with build up. Dip your scissors into the small cup of water to remove the reside. Dry with a paper towel.

Last step is to attach the cut out marshmallow on the other end of the pretzel stick. Creating an arrow. If you want put the finished product in a small plastic bag, and attach a note to the top saying some fun little Valentine saying. We like to say "Watch out for Cupid's Arrow! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
