6 Deliciously Easy Valentine’s Day Snack Ideas for Kids

sweet treats

As a girl, I enjoyed Valentine’s Day in our house. My mom always made it special with decorations, candy, cards, and a red & white dinner (i.e., spaghetti, lasagna, etc.). I have tried to make new traditions with my family for Valentine’s Day, and one thing we all enjoy are sweet treats.

If you’re looking for sweet treats for your own children or children at your church, check out six (six) of my favorites, courtesy of Pinterest.

Kids can stick wooden sticks into fresh-from-the-oven sugar cookies and then decorate the cookies with icing and all kinds of fun sprinkles and candies. Great for preschoolers & school-age children.

This snack features fruit, but you can use that heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut many foods—apples, pineapple, mango, kiwi, bananas, strawberries, cheese, bread, brownies, cookies. Great for toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children.
