Valentine's Day Snacks

I'm not a mom quite yet, but thought it would be fun for moms to have their toddler help make Valentine's snacks for the family.

Here are some ideas:

heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (use a cookie cutter)
english muffin pizzas with heart shaped pepperoni (just use kitchen shears to cut the pepperoni)
cupid's arrow made with pretzel sticks, marshmallows and other small candy

Here's a treat/activity:

Have your child finger paint his or her own valentines using chocolate pudding. Draw basic Valentine's shapes on cardstock or paper. Have them color using red, purple, pink etc. Make some chocolate pudding. Have them use the pudding to finger paint on the paper. It sounds funny but I did this with kids at school and they loved it! The pudding dries well. Just make sure it's a little thinned out. Then you can enjoy the leftovers if you'd like.
