Healthy Valentine Snacks {for School Lunches and School Parties}

When I was young, my grandmother always cut my sandwiches into hearts around Valentine's Day.  Now that my youngest girl is getting older, I am starting to realize that my days of heart shaped sandwiches may be numbered.  I'm not sure Owen will appreciate them as much as his sister!  So this year I am planning to take advantage of Miss Ruby's love of all things Valentine and add a few extra healthy Valentine's snacks to her lunch in February.

Modern Parents, Messy kids has a fun idea for heart shaped fruit kabobs that would be a big hit with the 2nd graders.

I am so excited that the next holiday is Valentine's Day!  It is one of my absolute favorite holidays!  Lots of red and pink, lots of hearts, all the fun gifts and treats, and about 1/100th of the stress of Christmas or Thanksgiving.  What isn't to love?

Here are some links to posts in my archives from Valentine's past that might come in handy!

Happy planning!!

Having a girl with a Halloween birthday makes looking at Halloween cakes even more fun.  We usually don't have birthday cake on Halloween because the night is already so full of sugar, but these spooky Halloween cakes make it hard to resist.
