Valentine Lunch Ingredients –
2 Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich’s
Mini Pretzel Twists
Strawberries, cut in half
(2) white or chocolate square Little Debbie snack cakes
Materials needed –
medium size heart shaped cookie cutter
mini heart shape cookie cutter
small round cookie cutter (small enough to make a circle shape out of the Little Debbie snack cake)
Directions to make Valentine Lunch-
#1. Use the heart shaped cookie cutter to cut a heart shape out of both of the peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. My hearts were on the smaller side so I made 2 sandwiches and made 2 hearts.
#2. Slice your strawberries in 1/2 and use the mini heart cookie cutter to cut small hearts from the strawberries
#3. Take one Little Debbie snack cake and use the small round cookie cutter to cut out a circle shape. Next, cut the circle shape in 1/2. Place each 1/2 on the sides of the 2nd snack cake forming a heart. Affix with toothpicks.
#4. Place the goodies carefully in your child’s lunch box and voila! You have yourself a cute Valentine’s Day lunch for your child.
