Let’s get cute and creative. A small gesture of love, friendship and kindness are what valentines mean to me, if you get them in the mail or at school. School valentines can be simple and sweet. I’m a big fan of non candy ones cause well my kids are still working on candy from halloween.
Most schools request that the valentines be non student specific, and if candy it be store bought in packages so parents can make the call on whether or not to allow their kiddo to have it. We always goes with a blanket message of “To my friend” “from…” Which than allows each kid to write their own name. It is a great assignment for those pre-school students and those need the extra practice on fine motor skills and writing.
These are some of the ones I’ve done over the years.
These cute little heart containers were easy to find at our local grocery store and 3in bags did the trick. Click here for the free printable heart beat tags. There are two kinds one for friends and one for teachers.
Bouncy ball were tons of fun and the colors made them super appealing. The practice cutting and writing was great for my little one. Creating Really Awesome Fun Things really came thru for me with the free printable.
