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!
2 Mini Raisin Boxes
2 Medium Googly Eyes
Heart Toy Maze or Sticker
Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Using a hot glue gun, attach the juice box the the raisin boxes, as shown in the photo below.
Step 2: Hot glue the applesauce cup upside down to juice box, as shown in the photo below. Do not get hot glue near the straw hole.
Step 3: Cut the paper straw into thirds and hot glue 2 of the pieces to the sides of the juice box, as shown in the photo below.
Step 4: Hot glue 2 googly eyes to the front of the applesauce, as shown in the photo below.
Step 5: Attach the heart toy maze (or sticker) with hot glue to the front of the juice box.
Step 6: Give to your favorite little valentine! The pieces should detach pretty easily so they can enjoy their snack!
