Uncomplicating Valentines Day

With Valentines Day right around the corner, we are excited to bring you 14 days of Valentines Day Tips for The Clueless Chick!  

Valentines Day does not have to be elaborate, expensive, or even celebrated on February 14th for that matter. Think of Valentines Day as your reminder to set aside time just for you and your Valentine.  It is so easy to get wrapped up in juggling work, your pregnancy, taking care of the little ones, etc., etc., etc., that you forget to take time just for the two of you.  

At The Clueless Chick we’re dedicating the month of February to helping you find easy ways to show your Valentine you love them - remember those things you used to do before the midnight feedings, early wake-up calls, play dates and soccer practice??

Check back every day for tips on everything from what to do if you can’t find or afford a babysitter, how to include your little one(s) in your celebration, to easy ways to fit in some time just for the two of you.  The Clueless Chick will uncomplicate Valentines Day beginning Wednesday February 1, 2012!

S’mores Favors

Nothing brings back fun childhood memories like an ooey gooey S’mores.  I made these adorable favors for the Pregnancy Tips for The Clueless Chick book release party and they were a huge hit!  This was the perfect way to let guests know where they could find S’more Tips for The Clueless Chick, and send them home with a fun treat.

Whether you’re looking for a unique favor for a Valentine’s Day dinner party, or Halloween treats for the kids at school, these are a fun, easy and inexpensive treat!

S’more Favors
1 Pretzel rod cello bag
8 Mini marshmallows
2 Graham cracker quarters
1 Mini Hershey’s bar
Ribbon (6-10 in.)
Personalized Favor Tag

Stack mini marshmallows, graham crackers, and mini Hersey’s bar in cello bag, tie closed with ribbon and add personalized favor tag.  Voila!  You have a personalized S’more favor!

Tips for The Clueless Chick:  You can use any size or shape cello bag by simply using full or half graham crackers, and large marshmallows.  Add a seasonal flare to your S’mores by using seasonal or flavored marshmallows.  Don’t forget that your guests will be eating these treats so wear gloves when handling food :-)
