Valentine’s Day is a huge deal at most elementary schools. From the Valentine’s Day cards with your children’s favorite TV characters on them to the treats to the parties, falling in love may be our goal for Valentine’s Day, but in the early years, it’s about friendship. Kids get so excited about what treats they are going to bring to school for Valentine’s Day, and are so enthusiastic with helping to make them, it is crushing when they get to school and their treats are ruined from the journey. To prevent this from happening, here are some simple treats that are easy to transport from home to school.

1. Rice Krispie Bites

Rice Krispie squares have become a go-to favorite for kids bringing snacks into their class – not only for them but for the parents as well!

Now you can work with the student in your home to create Rice Krispie bites that are Valentine themed with the help of some simple food coloring. Toss them in a Rubbermaid container and you can be confident they will arrive at school in the same number of pieces your child left home with. PHOTOS AND RECIPE BY: TWO SISTERS CRAFTING
