This Valentine's Day – shoot cupid's arrow through a plastic cup and watch the reaction you'll get from your kids. This is guaranteed to get big laughs!
Using an X-ACTO Knife, make two small slits, across from each other, in the top portion of a 16 oz. plastic cup. Make these cuts from the inside of the cup as it rests on a cutting board.
Cut an arrow tip and end out of red construction paper. Add two small slits to each shape so you can slip in a wooden skewer. I had a bag of 10" skewers that I cut down to 8". You can find these in the cooking supply aisle of your supermarket.
Slip the skewer into both slits of the cup and then add on the paper arrow bits. Fill with ice, cranberry juice and a straw. To prevent leaking, do not pass the point of the arrow when filling cup with juice.
Instead of juice – you can also fill this with candy to give as a gift.
