Valentine Treats

Trying to come up with cute Valentine treats for preschoolers is not hard, except when you have children in the class who have sever food allergies. One is allergic to peanuts and/or any traces of nuts, and another is allergic to chocolate. Seriously, chocolate? When I think of Valentine's Day, I always think of chocolates kisses or candy hearts. What were we going to do? So when I saw an idea in a magazine for treat bags with gummy bears and teddy grahams, I was thrilled! They are both on our list of things that the two can have! Wednesday, Holden and I filled Valentine cups with gummy bears and teddy grahams with a note attached "Bear Hugs from Holden". Holden loves gummy bears so he seemed to sample a little from each cup! And of course Valentine's Day would not be complete without cards. He choose SpiderMan cards with a marker attached for his friends. Thursday, he was so excited to pass out treats to his friends at the Valentine's Party-or as Holden said Cupid's Birthday.

A little LOVE before school Thursday
