Nothing says love like cheese, am I right?
My kids adore Valentine’s Day. They pride themselves on filling out their own Valentines (all by themselves!) and giving a little bit of extra love to their friends and classmates. And while I certainly love to encourage special treats to share, I have a thing against handing out candy to kids this time of year.
These healthier cheese snacks offer a great way to celebrate the season of love and friendship. Creamy, cheesy and easy to hand out in individually wrapped packages, string cheese is a great alternative to sugar filled candies. With the help of your kids, this easy DIY Valentine’s Day Kids Craft and Snack is just as fun to make as it is to eat!
