I came across some plastic light bulb containers while shopping at a craft store for my daughters room redo. I thought they were the cutest thing… and were PERFECT for the “You Light Up My World” Valentine I had been brainstorming! I grabbed up 10 for $1 each (and then used a coupon of course!).
I tried filling them with Lemon Drops, but the mouth of the container was too small. DOH! Then I decided to try Reeses Pieces… and took one for the team by eating all the browns. I then filled the light bulbs up with those – except there was more orange then anything else and I didn’t have enough yellow to fill one all the way.
Then I remembered the package of Baby Goldfish we had in our cupboard, so I grabbed those and VOILA! They were perfect. Of course, the contents don’t HAVE to be yellow, but for the purpose of pictures… I WANTED it to be!
All the kiddos at daycare will be receiving these Goldfish Light Bulb Valentines from my kids this year.
Personal use only. Do not alter. I used my 2″ hole punch to cut the tags out and tied to the bulb with baker’s twine.
