These are all fun to make and you don’t have to be a kid to make them. And there are some healthy choices that are delicious too!
1. Strawberry Cake Kebabs
All you need is some angel food cake, strawberries, and bamboo skewers. Have the kids alternate cubes of cake with the strawberries. They can make these right before eating them and drizzle some chocolate syrup over all. I have a feeling they’d like to add some squirts of whipped cream too. Fun and delicious! You can always add more types of fruits to the kebabs.
2. Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
Push a popsicle stick into a whole strawberry and dip in thick vanilla yogurt. Freeze and enjoy. These are beautiful and super healthy.

3. Brownie Hearts
Make your favorite brownies in a jelly roll pan (like a cookie sheet, but with sides) so that they are about half the thickness of usual brownies. Instead of cutting into squares, let the kids use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out hearts. Brownies work really well for this. If a heart pulls apart when they push it out of the cookie cutter, just “glue” it back together by pushing it back in. They can sift powdered sugar on the hearts and then add a dab of strawberry jam on top to fancy them up if they like. They will enjoy eating the “scraps,” but they can also use them to layer with pudding for parfaits or to add to ice cream.

4. Chocolate Covered Fruit Hearts
Cut kiwis, bananas, and/or strawberries into thick slices. With a table knife, carefully cut each slice to look like a heart. Dip in melted chocolate, place on aluminum foil and refrigerate. Healthy and yummy!
Your kids might come up with some more concoctions and combinations while in the middle of this. Let them have fun with it and be sure to take photos of their creations!
