Fun Balloon Valentine

Balloon Valentine

Exactly a week to go until Valentine’s Day so I thought I’d start with a few topical fun food plates!

Here are my love heart balloons.

Healthy Valentines snacks


– Watermelon for the balloons (or any red fruit)

– I used plums for the bodies (apple/pear/stone fruit/melon)

– I used blueberries for their heads

– I made the strings from sunflower seeds


1. I cut bodies for the people from plum.

2. And added arms.

3. Then legs.

4. I added half a blueberry each for a head.

5. Then used sunflower seeds to create the balloon strings. It wasn’t quite as frustrating to do as I thought it would be!

6. Next I used a cookie cutter to make three balloons each.

7. Gave them some sunflower seeds to walk on …
