Valentine’s Day is always lots of fun at any age and tweens are no exception. They may be beyond handing out Disney valentines to the entire class (at least that’s what they’ll have you believe) yet they still want to celebrate the sweetest day of the year. And nothing says “Will you be my valentine” better than homemade sweet treats. They say good things come in small packages and our roundup of Valentine treats are perfect for tweens to make and share (or not) with their valentines.
