Kids can help make these Fuzzy Valentine Cheese Balls for your Valentine’s Day festivities. The only problem with edible crafts is the kids may eat more than they make for the party, but then craft time is fun time.

Why not plan a Valentine Party where crafts are the featured entertainment. Nothing has to be perfect and kids having fun is the rule of the day.

Here is a Valentine craft that kids of all ages will enjoy making and giving. So have the kids “take out” their creative hats and dish up some special Valentine wishes for friends and family.

Trivia:It is said that Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting while in prison. It is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl — who may have been his jailor’s daughter — who visited him in jail. It is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.

Learn How to Make a Homecoming Mum. For many in the South, and for virtually all Texans, their introduction to the chrysanthemum was a corsage for the girlfriends and mothers at Homecoming football games. Mums are incorporated into elaborate corsages with streamers depicting school colors and special accessories. Corsages can be one, two or three Mums and today silk flowers can be substituted for the real thing.
