Kids love books and any reason to celebrate. So make Valentine's Day the perfect reason to have a Book Picnic. With Valentine's books from the library, create a fun picnic where you serve special treats and read all the fun books. Valentine Kabobs are the easiest treat to make and serve. Using wood skewers, thread strawberries, donut holes, brownie bites, shortcake, or marshmallows to make your kabobs. Just be sure to use the strawberries on the ends to hold the sweeter treats in place.
For a fun drink, to a disposable cup, add sprite, a smidge of grenadine syrup, maraschino cherries, and ice.
If you have real little ones, make sure your cups have a lid!
While they snack and drink away, read all the Valentine's Day books, and then leave them in a basket for reading all month long! Carpet picnics are magic, so use Valentine's Day to create some sweet memories in your very own home.
This year Valentine's Day is extra special, after a rough few years.
Why not celebrate with a beautiful arrangement of real roses that last a full year?!
