Valentine's Mix & Learning Inspiration


We had some snacks leftover from a party, and we decided to have some Mommy & Me Sweetheart Time! I had daughter take out the measuring cups, and we had a blast playing songs, and filling our bowl with yummy sweetness. The mix is simple, and makes for a great Valentine's party mix, and of course it is a great opportunity to emphasize math!


SWEETHEART MIX ITEMS:

  • Bag of regular popcorn

  • Bag of kettle corn popcorn

  • Bag of pretzels

  • Bag of peanuts

  • Box of Fruit Loops

  • Bag of animal cookies

  • Bag of gummy hearts

  • Bag of Sweethearts

  • Bag of mini marshmallows

  • Package of Red Vines

HOW TO MAKE:

Mix the items together. Use as much, or as little as you want of each item. Since we had leftovers we used it all. There is no rhyme or reason to all the sweetness!


MAKE IT AN EDUCATIONAL MOMENT:

Have your little one use measuring cups to count how much is in a bag, or measure out how much they want a certain item in the mix. You can talk about volume, or types of measurement. Or use with our printable below, to refresh math, and speaking skills.


HEALTHIFY IT:

Homemade popcorn with a dash of sugar or cinnamon can turn this mix into an excellent alternative. You simply add whatever sugar items you would like. Or alternate with candied fruit, sunflower seeds, nuts, etc. Put it in a heart bowl and no sugar is needed!


PAIR WITH A MOVIE:

Make it a family movie and watch Wreck-It-Ralph together!
