Here are 10 easy ideas for celebrating St. Valentine’s Day with your littles!
and NONE of them involve a beheading … but they do all involve food #lovelanguage
1. Red Dye.
I know it’s awful, but man some red dye is a lazy mama’s best friend on St. Valentine’s Day. Pink milk, pink yogurt, pink cottage cheese, pink eggs, pink queso …
Hurry and get them now! Heart sprinkles, pink jimmies, sanding sugar, put them on buttered toast, in yogurt, let your kids dip fruit into them, sprinkle on pancakes or waffles.
3. Pancake Molds.
We are getting fancy here! Pancake molds in the shape of hearts are everywhere and can be delivered via Prime too!
4. Cookie Cutters.
EVERYTHING HEART SHAPED! Heart-shaped sammies, heart-shaped cheese, heart-shaped portions on plates, heart shaped quesadillas, brownies.

These can be found on the shelf at the grocery store: yogurt, strawberry sugar wafer cookies, red velvet Oreos, red velvet chips ahoy, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, strawberry milk, marshmallows, Hostess snowballs, Little Debbie Heart Cakes…
