Toddle-tested Craft

Logan had fun pressing a sliced apple on a stamp pad to make this card. Use kid-safe ink as Logan's father learned that toddlers can be impulsive when it comes to eating apples.

You can watch Logan making this craft with his dad on Logan's Life to see how your child might like this craft.

Cookie Filled With Love Written by Carolyn Warvel

Dad, I made this special cookie just for you.
It’s to thank you for all you do.
I Added lots of sugar because you’re so sweet.
You deserve this delicious treat.
A little bit of vanilla because you add flavor to my days.
I can’t even begin to count the ways.
A teaspoon of cinnamon to spice up the dough.
Because you always pick me up when I feel low.
I’ve also added some things you cannot see,
But they’re important, I’m sure you’ll agree:
A cup of love and some great big hugs
But let’s hope there aren’t any bugs!

It is illegal to copy this poem and place it on another web site even if you include the author's name.

2. Make your favorite oatmeal cookies or other cookies that includes vanilla and cinnamon. Don't forget to throw in some love and hugs!

3. When the cookies are cool place one in a cup cake wrapper and place it in the middle of the piece of tissue paper. Bring up the sides of the tissue paper and tie with a ribbon.

4. Punch a hole in the heart-shaped poem and string the ribbon through the hole and tie it in a bow.
