~I received a case of Sweethearts for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and with it all the tasty candies that go along with it. This year the Sweethearts “Color Your Own” contest continues for your child’s chance at fun prizes. My daughter is sending in a box for each of her classmates for Valentine’s day so that they can each enter the contest too.
I really like how Valentine’s Day brings out the fun candy just once a year. I would sit around and read every single phrase off my box of Sweethearts Conversation Hearts as a young girl. Now I use the conversation hearts to help Big Sis learn how to read new words. She thinks it is fun and she gets to eat them as she learns. These color your own boxes make great Valentines since kids can eat the treats and color the box for a chance at prizes. I enjoy making Valentine’s Day extra special for my girls and these fun boxes are an easy way to do just that. Break out the markers and crayons and let the kids be creative.
