This is a quick and creative Valentine's Day treat for children. The students will definitely want to go fishing after seeing what is in the box!
1. At your local drug or retail store, purchase several decorative Valentine's Day boxes. These boxes are small and often sold for less than $1.
2. In a see-through bag, combine Swedish Fish, Trolli Sour Bite Crawlers and Miniature Sweet Tarts. Place bag in box.
Note: One bag of each candy will be enough for six boxes of treats.
3. On a computer or on decorative paper, write, "Sweetheart, You are definitely worth fishin' for!"
4. Attach note to bag. To add to the treat, attach a special Valentine's Day pencil.
This is an easy and convenient treat to make for a group, and it's simple enough to hand out before, during or after a party.
Adding a pencil to the treat is especially useful in case children have food allergies or sensitivities. It is also a non-messy treat for children to enjoy and will not be hard for the adults to clean up.
Before bringing it to a school, check the policies on classroom treats.
