10 easy Valentine's Day Ideas



My little bug isn't in school yet so Valentines aren't really needed. However, I thought it would be fun to have him give something to his cousins. Plus I teach a primary class in church that I would like to give a little something to so they will like me... So here are some ideas that I have come across that I LOVE!


What got me thinking about it was I saw these bubble gum party favors at Sams Club today for $10. They also had just fun colorful ones that weren't valentinesy. If I didn't already have the favors for my bugs upcaoming Birthday Party I would have gotten those. $.41 a piece, what a deal!

These recycled crayons are so much fun. These are one of the first things I ever pinned and I'm so glad I did. I love the no candy idea.

This next one is perfect for school age kids. When I was in school I was always losing pencils

Valentines don't have to cost much. Here is an almost free idea. However, I'm a little nervous about taking all those paint chips.

I'm thinking of making the grandma's a photo bookmark or my little bug.

I love this boy valentine! Feb 14th is such a girly holiday. What boy wouldn't love this?

How cute would these be to throw in your child's/ hubbys lunch? So fun!

These ones can be done with staples or a sewing machine. Love that you could buy candy in bulk and divid between gifts.

This brings me to a side note, can kids even hand out candy not package from the store? When I was a kid we would just buy a big bag of conversation hearts and put like 5 in each card. I think that is a no-no now right? So I guess the one above would be for non school kids.

I love this idea, maybe it doesn't fit into the easy category because it would be time consuming to make all the slits.

Another sucker one. Seems easy especially if you had a cricut to help you. She does include a template.

And last, but not least Fortune cookies. I think older kids would have a fun time coming up with the different fortunes to go inside.
