A Scoop Full of Kisses

A Scoop Full of Kisses

By Brenda Hyde

This is an easy and heartwarming gift which can be used for Valentine's Day or any occasion. It's so much fun and so easy, that you can make 2 or 3 and also give them as a special gifts for teachers, grandparents, parents or friends!

You will need:

*A scoop- a powdered detergent scoop or a sugar/flour scoop that can be purchased from the kitchen tool section of the store.

*Hershey Kisses

*Paper or index card and markers

*Paper lunch sack or brown craft paper

*Plastic wrap


*hole punch

Wash and dry the scoop. Fill with Hershey Kisses. Place in the middle of a square of plastic wrap, gather the wrap up into the middle, twist and tie with pretty ribbon. Cut a piece of paper to measure 3 1/2 x 5 inches long or use an index card. Fold in half. Punch a hole in one corner. On the front write "to" and "from" with your name and the person you are giving the gift to, then inside write the following:

A scoop full of kisses for you

Because I love you and all that you do.

Thanks Mom! (Or the name of the person)

Happy Valentine's Day!

You can change "Thanks" to Happy Birthday, Get Well, or any message you would like to add! If you want to give to a teacher, simply change love to "appreciate". String a piece of ribbon through the hole you punched and tie it to the gathered plastic wrap where you tied it with ribbon.

Decorate the lunch bag with designs, pictures, stickers or even fabric cut-outs. Place your scoop into the bag, fold over and punch two holes in the top of the bag, so they go through the layers. Now string ribbon through both holes and tie into a bow. Your gift is ready!

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
