Valentine Snow Day

What do we do on a snow day? Make Valentine’s Day gifts, that’s what! This year, we decided to make some sweet treats. If you aren’t into candy or food, then check out our candy-free ideas.  These sweet treats are easy to make and fun for the kids. Let them help with both the planning and the making of them. If you are giving these as gifts, don’t forget to make extra to eat.

MINI PIES

Let the kids make a special mini pie with their favorite filling. We used cherry, but apple and peach would work as well. If you want, cut hearts out of the extra pie crust and place on top to make it extra special. Get directions.

 

MARSHMALLOW POPS

These fun pops are a favorite with adults and kids alike. You can use your favorite candies, sprinkles, nuts, or any other toppings to make the pops taste great and look fantastic. We used both melted chocolate and icing for ours.  Get directions.

MINI CAKES

Just the right size for young Valentines. Use your favorite cake recipe or box cake and top with a colorful icing. We used pink icing on one, then added blue food coloring to make purple icing for the second. These mini cakes can be tailored for girls or boys – just change the color of icing and toppings. Get directions.
