Valentine’s Day at School
Making Valentine’s is such a fun craft to do with your kids and it is a great way to get cute and creative with the sweet notes they give to their classmates. Here are a few ideas and adorable alternatives to the average Valentine.
Get some yarn or embroidery thread and make easy braided friendship bracelets for the whole class to share!
This idea is a great alternative to bringing cards with candy to school. Get some sweet pea seeds for the class to grow together!
Arrows are all the rage in design right now and for a great reason! They are ADORABLE. This is a super simple DIY that can be paired with treats and/or a card for a unique valentine.
If you just don’t have the time for hand making a class size worth of Valentine’s, Babble has 20 free printables that would be perfect for sending your kid to school with cards that fit their own personalities!
Another option if you are looking to stay away from candy Valentines is to use a heart shaped cookie cutter for other food items! Apples, cucumbers or even sandwiches can be cut into cute little hearts. Put that in a decorated velum bag with a card and you are good to go!
Of course, if you ARE feeling like indulging your kids (or your) sweet tooth, this whoopie pie recipe might just do the trick. These would look adorable in heart shapes too!
So tell us, what type of Valentines are your kids exciting about sharing with their classmates?
