Nature's Candy {Happy & Healthy Valentines}

In an effort to be completely honest here, I'll admit I'm no picture of health.  But, being a mom, I try me darndest to make healthy-er choices for my son.  Besides, I think he's wild enough without the added assistance of sugar.  Can I get an Amen, fellow moms?!  With this in mind, my inspriration for this year's valentines was born.

I found this idea on Pinterest, but never pinned it, and can't find it again.  Sorry, if I could, I give the proper props, I would.  Anywho, I made these cuties (pun intended) for my students and for my son's classmates.  I designed the tags using Picnik online photo editing site and printed them out on cardstock.  I dropped the little fruits into the treat bags (found at Wal-Mart) and tied on the tag with twine.  Voila!  Couldn't have been easier.  I liked that not only, they weren't a sugary nightmare, but that they were more fun than a store-bought valentine. 
And, now, it's time for me to eat all that chocolate I won't let my kiddo eat.  Can't let it go to waste, can I?!
