Valentine’s Day is typically associated with celebrating adult romantic relationships; however, young kiddos like to celebrate love right alongside their parents. I have put together a few simple, fun, and kid-friendly Valentine’s Day recipes for you to make with your children this February.
Fun Valentine’s Day Recipes for Kids
Grab your kiddos and whip up these easy Valentine’s Day treats on February 14th! All of these recipes can be made pretty quickly and the steps aren’t complicated so kids can have a hand in making them.
Please remember, when baking with your children don’t aim for perfection… Allow these treats to have a “rustic” look so your kids can cook without feeling micromanaged. This is a tough one for me so I feel like it is important to mention.
1. Heart-shaped No-Chill Sugar Cookie Recipe
*Makes about 20 cookies
We LOVE a good sugar cookie around here! The issue is that I don’t always have time to chill the dough as most recipes require. Several years ago I discovered that I could make a no-chill sugar cookie with a couple of adjustments. These easy cookies can be made for any occasion, just grab appropriate cookie-cutter shapes! You can see my St. Patrick’s Day Sugar cookie recipe here.

4. Heart Shaped Apple Hand Pie Recipe
Apple Hand Pies are essentially mini handheld apple pies. I like to choose fun shapes that match whatever holiday I am baking them for- in this case, hearts for a Valentine’s Day recipe for kids. Make my apple pie filling and my all-butter pie crust to bring these sweet treats to life!
