Healthy & Fun Valentine’s Day Ideas from Earth’s Best

Children associate Valentine’s Day with one word: candy. Older and wiser, parents know that candy is full of sugar and saturated fats that are detrimental to the growth of children. This year, with a little creativity, you can still make your kids and their classmates a fun and festive Valentine’s Day snack while remaining health conscious.

  • Decorate any size Earth’s Best jar with ribbon or construction paper (have your child choose their favorite colors!) Then fill the jars with soil, add the flower bulb of your choice and voila — Earth’s Best jars become cute creative planters.
  • Wash jars of any size and paint each individual’s name on them (or you could print labels, etc.). Fill each jar with Earth’s Best Yogurt Puffs or Pop Snax. These will become perfect personalized gifts to give to classmates!
  • Use empty jars to make fun snow globes – just add water, glue some fun figurines to the lid and add some glitter.
