Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about romance and candlelight. With kids at home, this February holiday can be a day focused on family fun and connections.
I’ve pulled together a collection here of kid friendly Valentine snacks, activities, and treats that will inspire memorable holiday moments with the little ones we love so much.
There will inevitably be chocolate and candy, but it’s a good idea to make sure there are some Healthy Valentine Snacks too! These tasty snacks may be healthy, but with hearts and shades of red/pink, they will still feel special.
