“I Dig You” Valentine’s Day Gifts

"I Dig You" Valentine's Day Gift | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
My son loves playing in the sandbox. Shoveling sand, filling cups and trucks and pouring it back out and, well, eating sand. I know he’s not alone. I see plenty of kids his age at the sandbox with grains stuck to their chins.

When I saw some adorable Valentine’s Day treats with a sand shovel and a cute saying, I knew that was what my son’s friends would be getting as a Valentine. Something they can eat with a shovel!

Making these is as easy as gathering a sweet treat suitable for the occasion, like these pink, red, and silver Hershey’s kisses. You could also use sweet hearts, cinnamon hearts, pink jelly beans, or any other Valentine’s candy.

Or perhaps you feel like making something homemade? Cookies, rice crisp treats, and pink popcorn would be just as welcome on the big day.

If you want a non-edible treat for older kids (6-12), then this kinetic sand would be pretty sweet.

Directions:

Gather the treats in a small cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon.

Add a label to a small shovel and either tie it to the outside of the bag, or set it inside with the candies.

Either way, a label that reads, “Hey Valentine! I Dig You,” is the final touch that will put a smile in the heart of my son’s little friends… right before they gobble up those candies like they are sand.
