H is for Hearts

 Kate has fun with the different shaped ice cubes I have been making for her.

 When she was done playing with the ice hearts, she worked hard to put the slightly smaller heart shaped ice cubes back into the tray.  This was all her idea, her way of putting them away!!

I cut an H out of construction paper, and gave Kate some hearts I had punched out.  She really likes to use glue sticks, so she enjoyed gluing hearts on the H.

I merged Kate's H is for hearts theme with our current Christmas theme - candy canes - to make a special treat.
These are super easy to make.  I used regular candy canes, but for less sugar just use the mini candy canes.  I placed the candy canes in heart shape form on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and filled the middle with melted chocolate.  I then added a few sprinkles, and put the baking sheet in the freezer for a few minutes.  It doesn't get much easier.
