Valentine’s Day Lunch Ideas for Kids (+ FREE Printables)
Can you believe Valentine’s Day is this Friday? Here are some cute ideas for packing festive lunches this week to get your kiddos even more excited. Find some heart shaped cookie cutters (check out these here and here) and get creative with whatever is in your fridge and pantry. Heart shaped fruit, veggies, cheeses, sandwiches etc. are always easy and fun.
And, I’ve created four different lunchbox jokes for you to print and include. If your kids are like mine, they will love these silly jokes.
To make heart shaped snack sized tomatoes, cut them diagonally and secure with a heart toothpick or use a cupcake toppers (I found the ones pictured at my local Dollar Tree). To cut heart shaped carrots, first cut a triangle at the top lengthwise, and diagonal on the sides. Then chop slices.
The cucumbers are simply sliced and then I used a small heart cookie cutter. They are so easy and fun. To make little heart shaped peanut butter sandwiches, use a cookie cutter then press down with the end of a fork to seal.
Finish your lunch with a special note and one or more of the free printable jokes! The lunch box pictured has the inside top lined with chalkboard vinyl from the craft store so that I can use chalkboard markers to write special messages to my kids. I hope you can use these simple and adorable lunch box ideas for your little ones this week!
