Valentine’s Day may make you think of doing something romantic, but it can also be a fun day to celebrate with your kids. Whether you do it for a morning snack, “afternoon tea,” or an after-dinner dessert, I found 30 simple Valentine’s treats to make with your kids.

When considering what to put on this list, I thought about trying to make any one of these things with a preschool-aged child. If making something with a 3-year-old sounded stressful, I didn’t include it. Cooking with kids should be fun, and complicated recipes don’t contribute to that. As an added bonus, many of these simple Valentine’s treats don’t even involve baking or cooking—though some require a bit of patience (which is something we’re all trying to teach our kids, right?).

Even if you don’t have a big party or celebration, one of these ideas is sure to bring a little winter cheer.

Most of these treats don’t require any special tools, but if you want to go the extra mile, you might pick up some heart shaped cookie cutters, a heart muffin tin, or a heart cake pan!
