Valentine’s Day Heart Kabobs!

With Valentine’s day just around the corner, it’s good to think ahead to see what fun things we can do to make breakfast exciting and festive for the kids.  This fun recipe is quick, easy and great to get the kids involved.  With most holidays, it is about theme; and how fun is it to serve fruit, in different shapes.  The only thing you will need to create this recipe, is a      heart-shaped cookie cutter, which you can usually find at the dollar store this time of year.  Try this recipe next week at your KES Club:
