These Valentine’s Day Desserts are so much fun to make. Though Valentine’s Day was created as a day to celebrate romance for couples, it’s really always been a fun holiday for kids, too.
I remember having Valentine’s Day parties in school where we’d each make our own decorative mailboxes, and each person would place a Valentine’s Day card in each box. My brother and I would spend time creating our Valentine’s at home the week before, taking care that each one would be special for each of our friends.
Do your kids still make Valentine’s in school? It was my favorite party of the year!
Make this Valentine’s Day special by getting the kids to help you in the kitchen. These Valentine’s Day Desserts for Kids will be a big hit in your home. Cupcakes, candy, and cookies – what more could you want?. Check out these recipes and grab the ingredients in time to make them for Valentine’s Day.
