If you love them, re-use them!

What did we do with all of those Origami cups?

We turned about half of them into Valentines!
Hooray!! Hooray!! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Big Girl made these for her classmates. The cup contains three little chocolates.

So to those kids who criticized the Origami cups: how do you like it now? Bet you like it with candy inside, you little punks!

Middle Girl's preschool does not allow candy (right on!), so we put a kissy fish bath squirter in each cup!

For MG's teachers, we took an idea from Family Fun magazine, and gave them each a "you warm my heart" cup containing a packet of hot chocolate and a tea bag. I wish I had found something more special to put in (a fancier cocoa?), but it was not to be this time... I hope the intended sentiment was expressed...

Happy Valentine's Day to the bloggers I adore! You warm my heart (with a tear or with a giggle) every day, and you don't even give me chocolate!
