About this Article
My son is 8, so I knew hearts and flowers weren't going to cut it for Valentine's Day this year. Sure, he likes collecting candy from his classmates, but the rest of it? Ick. So I decided to take that reaction and run with it, designing a decidedly gross Valentine that would be fun for his friends without relying on more sugary treats. I stuck with a simple concoction that consists of water and fiber supplement powder (Metamucil). It's easy to make, not too sticky and, if you use the "berry" variety, ends up a vibrant red color perfect for Valentine's Day.
