Toddler friendly Valentine’s Day Treats

Toddler friendly Valentine's day treatsToday I am sharing my “toddler friendly valentine” craft project. It was a toss up to figure out what to create for my child’s upcoming Valentine’s Day party. I went back in forth between food or stickers, I settled on the idea of food. Then I had to narrow it down to small group of “healthy-like” foods for toddlers. I figured parents would not appreciate the candy, or yet, maybe they would for themselves. Anyways, it was a toss up between “Sprout” baby puree, goldfish and puffs. I thought the puffs would be the better way to go. Then I asked her teachers and they agreed. So puffs it is!

The next step was trying to come up with a cheesy saying. There are so many Valentine’s Day sayings out there. I wanted it to be unique. After coming up with a handful of cheesy sayings, my husband helped me narrow it down to this one. I browsed the internet for this saying and I cannot find it anywhere pertaining to the snack “puffs”, so I think I did well.

I first created this template which you can download for free. I initially included my daughters name along with a heart on the template. But I have removed it for the free download.
