Homemade Valentine’s Day Treats for Kids
They say the easiest and quickest path to reach the heart is through the stomach. This is an old proverb, while having a wise significance. Valentine’s Day is a great time to show care to the little members of the family, and quite obviously, Valentine’s Day treats for kids have no better alternative. You have all the opportunities to pack their breakfast, lunch and dinner with vibrant colors and flavorful Valentine’s Day treats.
Heart Shaped Pancakes
You can offer Valentine’s Day treats to your kids in the form of a heart-shaped pancake as their breakfast. It will certainly give them a nice start to the day! When they wake up in the morning, it will definitely make them surprised. You can add a few drops of red food coloring into the batter of the pancake. You can first make a bigger size pancake within the skillet. Use the mold of a little heart to cut the large pancake into smaller heart shaped pieces. Garnish with strawberries and whipped cream.
The ‘Love-Packed’ Lunch
This is one of the most excellent Valentine’s Day treats for kids that you can make to make your child feel special. Pack a sandwich filled with strawberry jam and cream cheese or even peanut butter. Don’t forget to make the sandwich in a heart shape. In order to make it in a heart shape, you need to take away the crust and then cut the rest of the portion of bread into a heart shape. You can cut it using a knife if you have full faith on your own talent or you may use heart shaped cookie cutters as a good substitute.
Apart from making sandwiches, you may also try making a Valentine roll-up for your children. Needless to say, this is one of the great additions for Valentine’s Day treats. Not only kids, but adults also enjoy it too. In order to make the Valentine roll-up, you need to use a tortilla and then spread red jelly on it. Then add cream cheese over the jelly and roll it. Cut the tortilla into small pieces. Dessert is also essential for Valentine Day treats. So, don’t forget to include it.
Dinner of ‘Affection’
You can prepare a lovely dinner with meatloaf. Mold it to give it the shape of a heart. If you are not satisfied with your own talent of molding, you can take the help of a heart-shaped pan available in kitchen supply stores. After cooking the meatloaf, chill it with crushed potatoes. You may add a few drops of red food coloring into the potatoes to give it a nice and appealing color. If you are looking for some dessert, you should try vanilla ice cream stifled in strawberry sauce. As expected, this would be one of the most excellent Valentine’s Day treats that your kids can enjoy.
