Don't think your kids would get excited about a non-candy treat for Valentine's Day? I bet they would. Kids love to celebrate holidays, they love to see old things in new ways, and they love to be reminded that you love them.
If you have heart-shaped cookie cutters, you can make cute sandwiches or pancakes or even fun, baked french fries. You can cut out "Heart Beets." Or you can just take a plate and form a heart out of anything you've got in the house. I made this raspberry heart for my son as an after-school snack. Simple. Fast. Nutritious and sweet. Can't beat all that with a stick!
My son got excited about his surprise snack. And he was reminded, yet again, of how much I love him.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends!
