Sweetheart Yogurt

This simple breakfast proves that special holiday meals don't need to be elaborate. Just sweeten some plain yogurt with honey, sprinkle on the granola in a heart shape, and expect big smiles at the breakfast table.

Heart-Boiled Eggs

To make these adorable eggs you'll need an egg carton, a chopstick, a rubber band, and four pieces of thin cardboard folded into V-shapes. For easier peeling, make sure to boil eggs that are a week old. Once they're finished cooking, dunk the eggs in cold water and peel them quickly while they're still warm.

Pack some love (and protein) into your child's lunchbox with a heart-shaped hard-boiled egg. Bonus: you can make these using supplies you're likely to have on-hand.
