Kids Class Valentine’s – For Just A Few Bucks!

February 3, 2020

It’s officially February and I couldn’t be more ecstatic!  January is always a long month for me, and one that seems to never end.  Anyone else?  So, I say bring on the month of LOVE and with that, the celebration of Valentine’s Day!

I absolutely adore Valentine’s Day for many reasons, but my favorite being all the fun crafts and classroom exchanges for the kiddos.  I’m not going to lie, I am going to miss this part of my kids childhood the most.  I am guilty of being that “Pinterest” mom.  Whatever that may or may not mean?

I know a lot of mom’s can get bitter and all caught up in the title. It’s totally okay if some things just don’t align with your personality or strong-suit.   I would totally be NO help when it comes to my kids math homework… We all have our areas that we achieve the best in, and to be honest, that doesn’t make us any less than. I have always been an arts + crafts person and love dreaming up elaborate and fun ideas to bring to fruition.

Whether you are an all Pinterest loving mom, or one who is not, it’s always in my heart to share what I love with you all.  Who knows, it might give you some inspiration & spark some ideas of your own that you didn’t know you had in you.  That’s the fun and magic in sharing our ideas and hearts with others.

Valentine’s  Mailbox Idea

This year I have just my three boys doing class exchanges for Valentine’s.  Every year we try to be super mindful of all the allergies out there, and making sure that we choose a treat that everyone can fully enjoy while not feeling left out.  This is especially important to my dear mama heart, since my oldest son has a gluten intolerance.

We decided to go to with fruit snacks this year, as they always seem to be a safe and good choice.  I picked up some goodies in Target’s dollar section and grabbed what I thought I would use.  I also found a few stickers in their regular Valentine arts & crafts section.  I adored these packs of blank cards (they come in a set of 8) for just $1!

I then hopped onto Canva and started looking for a good background to work with, and added in my wording to make a cute Valentine for the boys to hand out in class.  The whole process was super simple and took very little effort or time to pull together!  I stapled the fruit snacks inside of the card, and then had the boys address them to each classmate.

For just a few bucks (literally) we came up with a cute and simple Valentine, that will be sure to be a huge hit among the kiddies.  Do you enjoy coming up with crafting ideas?  Are you a big celebrator of holidays?  Click here to download the print we used for our class Valentine’s this year.

    This is such a cute idea! We never did Valentine’s exchanges when I was in school. I like that you chose fruit snacks, a healthier alternatives to sweets.

      I am always trying to think more “outside of the box”. I’ve done popcorn in years past, too.
