Oh no, it's Valentines Day tomorrow. How is it the middle of February already?! Okay, no big deal. I can run out to Target or Kroger and get a box of valentines. Ugh but there are so many cute Pinterest ideas I have saved.... and is the preschool okay with candy valentines? They have all those strict food rules... Do preschoolers really need more candy? Oh and the snack for the day needs to cover 2-3 food groups! Excuse me while I go scream in to a pillow.
You know what? Never fear. There are actually some quick and easy ideas that you can pull off TODAY, as last minute as it is. You can even use them to just brighten your toddlers day on Valentines Day at home!
1. Snack Robots
We went pink themed by choosing strawberry applesauce and a berry juice box. Mini raisin boxes for feet (or a hat), and smarties for the arms.
2. Applesauce Pig "Hogs and Kisses"
All you need is strawberry applesauce and craft supplies for the ears, eyes, nose, and tail! Super easy and would make a great valentine!
Another twist on "Hogs & Kisses?" These adorable pig bagels!
3. Valentine popcorn
I really phoned it in with this one.
-Pink and Red M&M's
4. Heart Jello Jigglers
Step 1. Make Red jello
Step 2. Cut out shapes with your heart cookie cutter
Step 3. Hide from sugar crazed toddlers in the pantry
5. "I Need S'more Friends Like You"
Another awesome and easy valentine idea! Graham crackers, mini Hershey bar, heart shaped marshmallow, and cute tag! Package in cellophane and brighten up the valentine box! I found a super cute (free) printable tag from Little Peanut!
So if you are a last minute mom just like me, enjoy these quick ideas and try to go to bed at a reasonable hour!
