Sugar Aunts: Valentine's Day Snack Mix

Valentine's Day Snack Mix

Need a Great

Last Minute Preschool Snack for Valentine's Day?

This was invented while rushing through the grocery store at 9:00pm after a long day of up-early-with-kids/going-all-day-with-kids/late-preschool-meeting/sooo-ready-for-pj's-and-bed!
I saw this Whole Heart cereal and grabbed it up.  It was on sale...I guess this is the week to eat heart shaped cereal :)

Little Guy is my early riser (and the one that wakes up everyone else in the house), so he and I got to making this treat eeeeeaaarly this morning.

He loved pouring the entire box of cereal and bag of m&ms into the big bowl.  I think his quote was

"this is the best idea you ever had, mom".
We scooped the mix into baggies and added a little heart with a message for our friends.

That was easy! 


  1. How cute! I've never seen this heart cereal but I will be looking for it!!

  2. How cute and simple! I will be now hunting for this heart shaped cereal :)

  3. I stumbled across your email thanks to a post on Facebook!! I love this idea. Check out a super simple science activity you can do with your kids this year!! Use simple materials and super fun!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. This looks lovely. What a great idea for a snack. I wish we could get this cereal in the UK

  5. This mix looks so precious! I would love to give this out!

  6. I love this idea, but I can't find the cereal anywhere around where I live; so, I'm going to use this idea and make a Valentine style "gorp" with another type of cereal and maybe some chocolate covered raisins and conversation hearts.
