Valentine’s Day is such a sweet, little holiday nestled right here in the middle of what can sometimes be bleak, winter days. If your kiddo will be exchanging valentines this year, try out one of our free printables that you can attach to a unique, non-candy treat to give away at school, or to neighbors. Punch a hole and tie it up with some coordinating ribbon for a quick, DIY idea for them to celebrate with all their lovely friends.

What are your favorite non-candy treats for your kiddos to give their friends?
Colleen, an Illinois native, and her husband, Aaron, met in 2001 during their freshman year at Texas Christian University and have been charmed by both each other, and Fort Worth, ever since. What makes her smile is the heady aroma of that first cup of morning coffee, the opportunity to be creative, consuming mid-afternoon hunks of dark chocolate, seeing her sons smile, and feeling the down-to-the-bone joy that is motherhood. Outside of what seems like daily trips to Central Market or Trader Joe's, she is likely to also be found sitting crisscross on a colorful rug at a story time, strolling the Fort Worth Zoo or at home gardening the pots on her front porch, also known as her living room.
