Cupid’s Arrows

We made these a few days ago in Activity Days at my church (I’m one of the leaders).
I had some supplies left over so I thought I’d make some for the kids for after school.

This is such a fast and easy project.
It would be great to have the kids make during a class party.

Stick a heart on one end of the pretzel to represent the arrow tip.

Cut the top off the other heart to represent the feathers.

Stick that heart on the other end of the pretzel.
You can put 3 or 4 in a bag to give as a sweet gift.

Even my picky eater appreciated the sweet and salty taste.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    LOVE these! Wanted to let you know I saw them yesterday, so when I was grocery shopping last night at WalMart and saw ONE tub of the cherry hearts left I grabbed it and headed to the pretzel aisle! Hubby and I watched TV while I made a ton of these for my son’s class and our neighbors. I didn’t refer back to your site until now, so I didn’t remember to put a whole heart for the arrow, just used the left over from cutting the tail out. And it still looked good. They taste pretty yummy too! Thanks for sharing your idea. Am pinning this now that I’ve passed them out : )

    Adorbs! I *might* just have to make these w/ my 4th graders! Are those Brach’s cinnamon jellies/jelly hearts? And if so, where do I find them?

    I stumbled across this cute idea while searching for an activity for my activity day girls. Where do you buy the heart candies?
