Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and if you have a kid in elementary school, you know they are getting ready to start filling out Valentine’s for all of the kids in their class. I don’t know about you, but I am hoping that I can stray Bella away from all the candy options and do something a little more homemade and fun! With all the different food allergies in classrooms these days, I would hate for a kid to go home with a box full of things he/she couldn’t eat. How sad is that? If you are looking for non candy Valentine’s ideas, then keep reading! I found some good ones!
Non Candy Valentine’s Day Ideas!
Aren’t these cute? And they are so easy to make! Head on over to Simply Being Mommy for a great printable (makes it soooo much easier for you! Your welcome!) and because I love you all so much, I found a 3 dozen assortment of Valentine’s Pencils that you can order on Amazon and BAM! You’re done! Just put the kids names on it and you have that project done without leaving the house!
I absolutely LOVE these! You can get the little puffs at your local craft store (and just order these Foam Heart Stickers. I think these are cheaper than the craft store). Head over to Momdot to find out how she put these cute things together for the kids in her daughters class. I can tell you right now, Bella would want to make these!!
Star Wars is HUGE in my daughters class right now (3rd grade). She is always coming home telling me that they played Star Wars on recess! Head on over to A Grande Life for the adorable printable. Of course, like the other non-candy Valentine’s ideas, I found glow sticks on Amazon. You have more than enough for your child’s class and you can save some for fun this summer!
These are SO CUTE! Milk and Cuddles has a great printable on their site for you to use. Every kid loves window clings! Shoot…my kids are 9 and 11 and they both like window clings too! My 9 year old is forever asking me if we can buy them and put them up! I found these Valentine’s Day Gel Clings on Amazon. I really like the monkey’s!
Now…I know this one is a food item (it’s not candy!!), but the pouches I’ve seen say they are gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc. If your child’s school is like mine, the teacher usually posts on the door “this is a X free zone” so anyone coming in knows what allergies are in the room. I just had to include this adorable idea that Eat Craft Parent came up with. The Fruit Me Up applesauce pouches I found on Amazon are not only a good price, but they contain JUST apples. How great is that?!?
