    Default What are your kids doing for classroom valentines?

    I have a kindergartener and two preschoolers (all boys), so there are three Valentine parties coming up. I do have three packages of store bought Valentines, but I was thinking I'd like to do something more creative than that. I don't think there is anything wrong with the store bought ones. I loved those myself as a kid. I may end up going that route, but I want to explore my options first.

    I saw a really cute idea that someone did in their PS/photo editing software. They took a photo of their child and then the child glued one googly eye in the middle of their photo (so they looked like a Cyclops, and made for a lot of laughs). The sentiment said, "Valentine I have my eye on you." I think my kids would love that. The problem is that my 2 three year olds are in the same class and I think I'd like their Valentines to look different. Although it probably doesn't matter too much.

    I really love this idea too, but it might mean spending more than I'd like to (and again the two kids in the same class problem arises)

    So... what are your kids taking to school for Valentines Day? Are you going to/ have you made something? Are you doing store bought?

    If you've seen any neat and interesting ideas for Valentines I'd love to see

    That is super cute! IDK what we are doing yet...for Travis it will probably be store bought...he has to turn them in tomorrow, and they have to be flat, they are doing a "mail" lesson with it and the kids have little mail hats and they have to address the envelopes and put the valantines in them. LOL. Maybe Tyler and I will get creative. Yours are super cute.

    A couple years ago I did these





    I'm going to try it out again. This year. I'm actually taking pictures today so we'll see how it goes. I'll post you a pic when I get them done.

    I also thought I'd try this one for my baby to give the grandparents



    These May be a lot of work for a full class but I did these for Jaden small preschool class one year. I used Julie's template

    Julie, that's totally neat how they will mail it. Boo, Saturday mail delivery will end in Aug

    OOH, I love the kissing hand, that is awesome!! It reminds me of this free app:
    The Kissing Hand: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...582477486?mt=8

    I just finished designing the cards for the kids. Going to work on it today with the treat. Need to figure out how to tie it on..lol.
    I'll take a pic and post it

    The ball idea was one of the options I gave Gabe, but he chose star sunglasses with a print out that says "Valentine, you're a star in my eyes!" The sunglasses were 3.99 for a 10 pack at Party City and we needed two 10 packs to cover the class so yes, it's more than buying a box, but it's fun and doesn't include candy.

    I liked this ball idea too. I'm just putting a link to the Pinterest Pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/213006257347822631/

    Lots of fun ideas! I have to work on my crews this weekend! My 2 year old is taking small ziplock bags of teddy gram cookies with a bag topper that says "You're Bear-y Sweet". My 4 year old wants butterflys with a sucker in the middle (so it looks like the body of the butterfly). I have to do something sporty for my 10 year old... and I'm not sure with my 8 year old yet!

    I forgot to include this pin. It's Star Wars themed and we're not Star Wars fans, but I still thought it was really cute and similar to the lollipop idea.

    Love all of these ideas! But DD's school doesn't do Valentine's day. IDK if I'm happy about this or annoyed lol. I kind of like that they won't waste class time passing out invites to each other but at the same time it is fun to do. (Though I wouldn't make anything. I'd buy whatever Disney Princess crapola Target had lol.)
