Valentine’s Day is a big deal around here, and we know it is for many of you, too! Anytime we get to celebrate love, we’re all in!
Around this time of year teachers and students are buzzing about getting ready for their annual Valentine’s Day school party. We want to make sure your kiddo is the talk of the party with these fun Valentine’s Day Ladybug Oreos. We highly doubt anyone else will have anything like them :-).
Another fun way to make Valentine’s Day special for kids is by getting in the kitchen and whipping up a delicious treat together. So while you’re prepping for the party, be sure to get the kids involved in the Valentine cookie making process. Spend some time together and make it fun. After all, we believe Valentine’s Day is also about how parents can make their kids feel special, too.
These Ladybug Oreos are the perfect Valentine’s day snack to pass out in the class, at home to siblings, or from parents to kids. Just have fun making them!
