Valentine rockets

I got this cute idea from a great website, We made them for our cousins and the boys in Rylan's playgroup. I used rollos since they were some of the only kid-friendly rolled candy around. Funny how lifesavers don't come in a roll anymore. We hot-glued Hershey kisses to one end, attached the flame to the other, and wrapped them in colored construction paper. Later I added some Valentine heart stickers, because they just didn't look "valentinesy" enough. Maybe I should have used more pink and red for the rocket bodies, but we only have one girl cousin and I just couldn't see the boys getting excited about pink rockets.

Rylan had a lot of fun making them, especially getting to help with the glue gun!
