Decorating Lunchbox Fruit for Valentines Day

A few weeks ago I looking for Valentines ideas and found this fun idea on various Pinterest boards. 
I thought it would be fun for the kids to find some fun Valentines fruit in their school lunches.
 I purchased some edible ink Candy Decorating Pens  in the cake decorating section of my local craft store.  

I washed the fruit well and dried it and then I printed my declarations on them to sweeten someone's day!  I  let them dry and then went over it once more with the felt pens to give more definition.  

I shared my pens with my little grands and was given these photos to show their Valentine Fruit Decorating party!  

Thank you to my daughter-by-love Bea for the photos of our sweet littles.

Whatever it is you do to make your family feel loved this coming week...
we wish you sweet moments in your Valentines preparations.
