Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show the people you love the most just how much you care! And while kids may think some Valentine’s Day traditions are “mushy,” they won’t be able to say “no” to a sweet surprise. A little treat that makes them feel special is sure to squeeze a smile out of them. Plus, little gestures that say “I love you” in a fun and unique way create moments that turn into memories kids can cherish for years to come.
We love the thought of starting the surprises at the beginning of the day. Who wouldn’t be pleasantly surprised by these cute and clever heart-shaped pancakes?! And the best part is – these are super easy! Just cook pancakes as you usually would adding a little red food coloring to a few of them, and then use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the hearts.
Surprise your kids at lunchtime by sticking a little note in their lunchbox! This is also a great idea to use on your child’s birthday or even on the day of a big test when your child needs some extra encouragement.
Most kids get more than enough candy and other sugary treats from teachers and friends at school on Valentine’s Day. So consider balancing them out by making a special snack that’s festive and healthy! These adorable heart-shaped fruit kabobs look like they would be so much fun to eat!
If you are looking for a little Valentine’s Day gift to give children this year, consider giving them a little something that will keep on giving. A pair of stylish Real Kids Shades would be a wonderful surprise! Your kids will enjoy their cool new sunglasses, and you’ll enjoy knowing that your Valentines’ eyes are being protecting from damage caused by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
