Valentine’s Day is Miss M’s favorite holiday. It has been as far back as I can remember. It trumps her birthday and her Valentine’s have to be the most special of all her class. In the past this has meant buying boxes of chocolates for every child in her class..it has meant long nights at the sewing machine making candy filled snakes and rolls filled with old-fashioned candy sticks (and a box of crayons for when the candy is gone). It has meant hours at the creation station making handmade boxes for her to fill with candies.
All the celebration also means heart-shaped grilled cheese should be waiting when she gets home from school.
By February 15th, this Mom is exhausted.
This is not to say I haven’t loved being overwhelmed by the day that is dedicated to love. Times are just a little different now and I don’t have a budget to do it like that, besides I’m trying to monitor how much sugar my kiddos are consuming.
We’ve gone simple the past year or so and Miss M now loves sharing Yum Earth Organic Treats with her friends and classmates. She can indulge in her holiday and we aren’t adding to the sugar fest.
YumEarth Organic Valentine Pops and GummyBears are festive and fun.
This year she is loving the YumEarth Organic Valentine Pops. The entire bag has just 17 grams of sugar. Each pop is made with real fruit extracts, 100 percent Natural flavors and Vitamin C. They come in some pretty tasty flavors also: Pomegranate Pucker, Wet-Face Watermelon, Strawberry Smash, Googly Grape, and Very Very Cherry.
The Yum Earth Valentines Lollipops come with their very own fun custom personalization Valentine Stickers.
Li’l Man is more about GummyBears. YumEarth Gummybears are delicious. They are soft and full of flavor!
