Valentine Ideas for Kids are sometimes hard to come up with now that schools are asking for NO candy related items to be given out. Well, that may be fine for birthday celebrations, but for Halloween or Valentine’s it is a bit more difficult. I thought outside of the box for a few ideas involving fruit that you can make at home and aren’t too expensive ( I will be adding more throughout this month too).
For the Applesauce Squeezers idea above I just used card stock I had from scrapbooking and ribbon I had (this is the perfect time to use up your leftover Christmas red ribbon), cut the tag out + a smaller one I glued on top with a glue stick and used a sharpie to write the phrase. EASY!
I keep an eye out for sales on the squeezers from the beginning of the year on and sometimes luck out like this sale + coupon I found above! It’s a great way to “treat” little ones without the sugar. 😉 The next candy free Valentine idea uses Quaker cereal that comes in the shape of hearts! The entire directions are here to use, but this is a great finger food for Valentine’s Day! Just two ingredients and walahhhh!
The next candy free Valentine idea here is great for passing out at school! I even include a free printable for the labels you see here if you don’t want to make your own. You just need some Goldfish crackers for this one….all kids love those!
The next one I used a Z bar which is a Cliff bar for kids (almost identical to cliff bars just smaller in size) and used the same card stock with this cute phrase. This is one that can be found in many flavors but may not be suitable if your child (or one in their class have peanut allergies) but if not, these are great, organic and really tasty!
