Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do kitchen science with kids. Whip up these fun Valentine’s candy recipes for heart lollipops for science fun!
My kids love cooking in the kitchen. One of my favorite things about cooking with kids is not only that they learn to cook (so important!), but also that it is the perfect place to solidify math skills! In the kitchen, kids can learn a lot about science and math. Cooking is one of the ultimate STEAM activities!
Bring some STEAM into your kitchen this Valentine’s Day when you make these valentine candy recipes for heart lollipops!
