Creative Treats for Valentine's DayCreative Valentine’s Day Treats are one of my favorite parts of this sweet holiday! I can’t get over all these clever Valentine’s Day cards I see on Pinterest these days.  Today, FamilyFun Magazine–one of my favorite magazines for creative activities for kids–is sharing with us some of their favorite creative Valentine’s Day treats!


Creative Valentine's Day Treats

  1. To make the cookie wands, sandwich white frosting and a lollipop stick between two small cookies, such as Lorna Doones.
  2. Freeze them for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat candy melts with 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil.
  4. Dip the cookies in halfway, then sprinkle on edible glitter (find it, plus the sticks and candy melts, at craft stores).
  5. Let them set on waxed paper overnight.



Creative Valentines Day Shark Treats with Printable Template

These creatures (backed by clothespins for a fully functional Jaws effect) are sure to inspire toothy grins.

  1. Start by drawing the shark’s top and bottom halves as shown or tracing our template (get it at familyfunmag.com/printables) on glitter card stock.
  2. Cut out the halves, then apply tacky glue along one side of a clothespin and adhere them. Place the shark on waxed paper to dry.
  3. When the glue is dry, slightly bend one tail section forward so that when the mouth opens, the tail parts smoothly pass one another.
  4. Glue on a sequin eye.
  5. Cut a paper heart (we used pinking shears to trim a “bite”), write your message, and glue the heart to a treat.



Healthy Valentine's Day Treats

Let your kids make these simple tomato and cheese skewers and they just might fall in love with healthy snacking.

  1. Start by diagonally trimming away the ends of two grape tomatoes and trimming small pieces of cheese (we used cheddar) for the arrow parts.
  2. Then have your kids assemble the pieces on a toothpick as shown.



umbrella Valentine's Day Cupcakes

Pretty up a paper parasol to top a sweet treat (or to slip into an envelope).

  1. To create one, brush a thin coat of white nontoxic glue onto an opened drink parasol (available at party stores), then roll it gently in fine edible glitter.
  2. Let it dry.
  3. Write a message on a folded strip of paper, then secure it around the pick, using a glue stick.

CRAFTER’S TIP: To minimize mess, spread the glitter in a baking pan lined with waxed paper. Afterward, use the paper to funnel the glitter back into its jar (do this over the pan).


Have fun with these creative Valentine’s Day treats!
