Happy Valentines Day!

During our group this week the theme was all about valentines, so we made a healthy snack and a sweet treat for the students to enjoy!

Apple and Strawberry Hearts:

Tools: heart shaped cookie cutter, knife

Ingredients: apples, strawberries, peanut butter, chocolate chips (optional)


  1. cut your apple into thick round slices
  2. take the heart shaped cookie cutter and press into the apple until a heart shaped piece comes out
  3. spread some peanut butter in the center of your heart apple
  4. take a strawberry and cut it in half, place the flat side facing down on the peanut butter
  5. (optional) take some mini chocolate chips and place them around your strawberry on the excess peanut butter

Cupid Floats:

Tools: ice-cream scoop, long straws, spoons, cups

Ingredients: cherry 7up, vanilla ice-cream, whipped cream, cherries or strawberries


  1. Start with 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice-cream in your cup
  2. pour cherry 7up until the ice-cream is covered
  3. top with whipped cream and cherry or strawberries

Each of the student had a part in making their snacks. One student poured the soda, while one scooped the ice-cream, and another topped with whipped cream and fruit. We encourage turn taking and helping others during all of our group activities!
