With this Valentine’s Day Easy Dessert: Heart Skewers treat your kids will think you’re amazing!
Sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy to go all out but I still like and want to make the holidays special for our family. My secret on how to do this is to mix homemade with store bought ingredients. I bought heart shaped marshmallowey type of candy and shaped my fresh strawberries to look like hearts. Instead of chopping the ends straight off, like I usually do I chopped them off in a V-shape so they look like hearts.
Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday that I like to use to remind my children that “LOVE” is a verb! It’s not just about romantic feelings you have for someone but it’s an action. I enjoy integrating our values and faith into this holiday by making it fun for our kids with our family traditions. Here are 8 fun ways we enjoy Valentine’s Day as a family.
See, I told you it was easy! These skewers were a special dessert for my kids but we’ve also enjoyed them as a Valentine’s Day dessert with chocolate fondue. Which they oohed and aahed about. I always love when I get those kinds of reactions from something that didn’t take me very long to whip up.
