Last year we reviewed the Game of Humanity cards.
Thus brilliant set of cards were designed to spread positive gestures one card at a time.
The idea behind this concept is to pick a card, complete the random act of kindness and leave the card with the person you gifted /helped for them to pay it forward.
You can purchase your own set at http://www.gameforhumanity.com
The 17th of February is National Random acts of kindness day.
Just like Valentine’s day , this is a day I feel we should celebrate all year round.
There is always some good you can do for others.
As women we need to learn to.love ourselves in order to care for those we love.
Join me on a 31 day self love challenge starting today. Each day I will follow the image task and blog about it.
If you don’t blog follow with an image or post on Facebook or Instagram
Remember to #funmammasa on any social media platform so I can follow you .❤
For mammas the best way for us to show our love is through food.
So I’ve rounded up 5 fun kitchen treats that you can suprise your loved ones with on Valentine’s day.
1. Egg bread
Use a cookie cutter in the shape of a heart to cut out the centre of a piece of bread or toast. Fry an egg. Place the bread over the egg so that the yolk is in the centre of the heart.
Garnish with little heart tomatoes or peppers.
2. Funky fruit
This is perfect for the lunch boxes. Dress up a piece of fruit with a corny love note.
3. Lunch box love
Now there is no excuse not to remind the kids how much they are loved. Make a sandwich and cut it into a heart shape. Tie a little twine around it.
Next cut cucumber slices and cheese into hearts.
4. Say it with hearts
Decorate heart shaped biscuits with bright red and pink icing. Don’t forget to add a love note.
5. Cute cupcakes
Use marzipan to decorate some cupcakes. Add small Valentine’s symbols on the top.
Which ever way you chose to spoil your loved ones we know they will enjoy their sweet treats. ❤
After a very long Janu-worry, budgets are only started to find an even balance before Februaries month of love strikes with cupids arrow declaring Valentine’s day.
So if you find yourself in a tight spot wondering how to spoil your Valentine without breaking the bank, consider exchanging R30 worth of your smart shopper points for a 2D movie ticket.
Movie tickets are valid for Ster kinekor and you can chose a movie of your choice.
Thank you Pick n Pay and Ster Kinekor, this one is tops on my Valentine’s spoils .
