Mice Made with Candy Kisses
The kids will love these Mice Made with Candy Kisses. Everyone will be running to make this tasty craft for Valentine’s Day.
Valentines Day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which sweethearts expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering candy, and sending Valentine’s cards. Today everyone from young to old gets into the spirit of sharing their love with friends and family on Valentine’s Day.
