Valentine’s Day Breakfast

valentine's day Breakfast

Last year Emily shared with us how to Fill Your Kids Love Tank. One of her suggestions was Valentine’s Day Breakfast. Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year it makes it a little less chaotic than trying to surprise the kiddos on a busy weekday with breakfast before school and still trying to get out the door. 

First and foremost this isn’t about making a big and flashy breakfast worthy of the ‘gram, it’s about (as Emily put it) filling your child’s love tank and making them feel special and loved.

Heart-Shaped Foods

Pancakes, waffles, muffins, and even bacon are all super easy to make into a heart with a cookie cutter, heart muffin tin, or a little creativity. Shipley’s even sells heart-shaped donuts on Valentine’s day. 

Red, Pink, White Foods

Strawberries, raspberries, marshmallows, whipping cream, and strawberry milk just to name a few; and let’s face it add chocolate and some sprinkles to anything and it’s on-brand. You can also use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out other fruits.

Simple Decorations

  • Get some heart-shaped paper plates and use double-sided tape to stick them on the walls for a pop of red and floor to ceiling decorations.
  • Pink, Red, and White streams tossed everywhere go a long way to make any room festive 
  • Cut out hearts leading from their bedroom to the table
  • Make it breakfast by candlelight
  • Blow up some balloons

Crafts

Prepare a few supplies to make some easy crafters after all the deliciousness of breakfast has come to an end. Below are a few easy ideas that take little to no prep time. 

  • Melted Crayon Hearts
  • Decorate Cookies
  • Thumbprint Magnets or Plates (these are a great idea for Valentine’s gifts for Grandparents)
  • Sewing Hearts – remembers those hearts you used to create a pathway from the bedroom to the kitchen grab those with a hole punch, yarn, and a plastic tapestry needle and go to town.
