Peanut Butter and Jelly Valentine {Easy Peasy Valentines}

I don't know about you, but I'm having a difficult time getting my creative juices flowing again since the holidays.  I have been organizing every square inch of my house--except for my craft room!  I need to get my craft on again!  This year, my mantra is "SIMPLIFY!"  My brain seems to handle simple things well.

But I also need something fun to look forward to!

So welcome to my Valentine's Day series, "Easy Peasy Valentines."

Each and every Friday, I will be sharing a quick-and-easy homemade valentine idea.  All ideas will be cheap. And all ideas will be easy.  Today's valentine is print-and-go!

Little Man will be handing these out to his friends in his Boys Club.

Today's valentine costs less than a $1, and what child doesn't love peanut butter and jelly?!  We eat it for dinner almost every night when Mr. oopsey daisy is out of town.  It's a classic.

What?!  You don't think of peanut butter and jelly as romantic?!

Maybe this can get you in the mood...

So here is how you can create your own easy peasy peanut-butter-and-jelly valentine:

I purchased this box of frozen peanut butter and jelly uncrustable sandwiches at Wal-Mart.

It was a box of 4 for $2.93.  So each sandwich was less than a $1.  Not bad!

(Because they are meant to be kept frozen, we will give these out last minute!)

I created this image in Photoshop.  You can download this here if you wish to create your own.

The Monster Sandwich

Ever since our monster playdate, we've had monsters on our mind!
This is what we ate for lunch today:
The slightly scary but oh-so-yummy monster sandwich!
We couldn't help but cackle wickedly while eating every bite!
You can easily make a monster sandwich with what you have on hand in your own crisper drawer.  But this is what we used for ours:
* Lunch meat for face
* Sprouts for hair/fur
* Cucumbers for eyes
* Olives for eye balls
* Cheese for nose
* Cherry tomatoes for mouth
* Pickle for tongue

 

Many times, my food crafts are not even close to being healthy.  But with this fresh yumminess served on whole wheat bread, it's a perfectly healthy meal.
I hope you enjoy a healthy snack with your own little monsters!
Cheers!
