Total confession….I am the ‘mean mom’ when it comes to candy. Whenever my kids are given candy, we have a piece or two and then the rest magically disappears after the kids have forgotten about it. Thankfully, they would rather beg for broccoli (happy to oblige!) than any sweet, so they still love me…lol! But even if you are not a big candy fan, these Valentine’s Day Candy Activities are a great addition to your February learning plans!
