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!

  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.
