If you’re looking for some cute Valentine crafts for kids to give their classmates, these heart crayons are easy and fun to make! All you need are old crayons and a heart-shaped mold to make these colorful art supplies. I don’t know about you – but I am ALWAYS finding stray crayon pieces around our house, in the van, under the couch cushions… this should be a piece of cake!
Here’s how to make them – and some nice deals on Heart-Shaped baking molds as well:
Some of the best gifts are the ones that are made with love by hand! As Valentine’s Day parties draw near, you might find yourself needing to come up with small favors for your child’s classroom or teachers.
While it might seem easy to run out and buy a box of paper valentines, think about how much fun your children will have if they get to create the valentines themselves! For about the same cost of a few boxes of paper valentines, you can whip up your own Valentine’s Day pencil toppers for friends and teachers. The best part? This sort of valentine can be used long after the holiday is over!
If you’re looking for a romantic date at home without breaking the bank, check out this FREE Valentine Cards Date-Night Game for a sweet and fun night in! Just print out the sheet of 30 Free Valentine Cards with ideas of fun and thoughtful conversation starters.
Cut them out and fold them in half, and place them in a bowl on the table. Set the scene with some music, special snacks, and get ready to learn more about each other!
Teachers love Valentine’s Day just as much as the students! It is a fun time to make Valentine’s as a class, learn more about the history of the holiday, and exchange little gifts. Teachers typically receive lots of goodies to enjoy on Valentine’s Day from their students, including the traditional chocolate and flowers. And while these gifts are very thoughtful and sweet, perhaps you are looking for something a little more unique this year to give? If you want to give your child’s teacher a fun and purposeful Valentine’s Day gift this year, look no further!
Looking for some cute printable Valentines ideas for this year’s class party? Many schools are asking that NON-food items to be brought in for class parties and holidays – especially with all the food allergy issues that come with candies and baked goods.
A fun and creative solution are these Printable Valentines Play Doh Labels you can cut out and affix to Play-Doh cans! We found a 24-Pack of Play-Doh for only $12.99 Shipped, which comes to around $.50 per child. Perfect cheap and fun solution – plus it works great for boys OR girls!
Thanks to RandomThoughtsofaSupermom for the cute idea!
