Use them to jazz up milk, fruit juice, smoothies, whatever your kids like to drink!

All you need to make these fun Valentine’s Day ice cubes are a heart-shaped ice cube tray (I used this one!), food coloring, and whatever liquid you’d like to fill your hearts with.

My kids mainly drink milk, so I filled my heart molds with milk, and added a drop of food coloring to each heart (alternatively, you can color your milk first, then add it to each mold). To cut down on the mess, I used a medicine dropper to fill each mold.

Use a toothpick or skewer to mix in your color. I completely mixed in my food coloring, but I found that if you stop after the coloring is halfway mixed or so, you’ll get a fun, marbled effect!

Stick in the freezer, and let harden.
