Craft: Robot Valentine’s Day Snack

Robot Applesauce Valentine Snack copy

I signed up for Valentine’s Day snack duty this year and my son gave me explicit instructions that it be a robot – valentine snack. Robot snacks with applesauce, juice boxes and candy are all over the internet, but I needed to create a mostly healthy valentine version without candy for his class. I hit the Valentine’s Day aisle and found heart toy mazes, perfect for my robots! If you aren’t having to adhere to a no sugar policy, you could use heart shaped chocolates instead. For the arms, which are typically created with long shaped candy like Smarties or Tootsie Rolls, I used paper straws. I think these little guys turned out super cute and I’m looking forward to snack time! This snack is 5 year old tested and mom approved!
