I love crafting and creating cute holiday themed outfits and treats for my daughter like my "Bow"Tiful Valentine and Valentines Day Shirt. I also love creating holiday themed recipes and treats to continue with the festivities the entire day. Last year we made special Valentines Day Pancakes and Toddler Friendly Valentine Cookie Bars.
Since my daughter loves fruit I decided to present it in a way that would be perfect for the day of hearts and love instead of the standard bowl of fruit that I usually give her. I also wanted to make it fun for her to eat.
I went out to my local discount store and found so many Valentine decorations. I picked up some cupcake wrappers that came with these cute heart picks and some glittery hearts that we could tape to the windows. I thought the picks would make festive little skewers and the wrappers would be the perfect little holders.
I always have fruit in the fridge especially strawberries which are my daughter's favorite. I took out some blackberries, strawberries and blueberries and picked though them to find the perfect ones. I cleaned them and then cut the strawberries in half.
I wanted the red of the strawberries to pop so I skewered them in between the deep colors of the blackberries and blueberries. Then I popped about four of them into the little cupcake wrappers.
As soon as I gave them to my daughter she said "Ooohhh hearts!" I took one and showed her how to eat it. (Make sure to supervise your kids eating them with the skewers. The tips were not super pointy but you never know.) She gobbled them all up and started playing with the skewers and counting them.
Stay tuned next week where I will show you a deliciously sweet and easy Valentine Day treat!
