I have to admit, I love Valentine’s Day. As a mother, it feels like a sweet excuse to make a winter day feel special and exciting for my boys. I find a lot of joy in highlighting holidays and making them memorable for my kids. There are so many adorable Valentine’s out there now that I simply can’t resist doing them for Rowan and Henry and their preschool classes. I created the below list of classroom Valentines ideas for you to make for or with your children for their friends and classmates. I also love the idea of sitting down with kids and creating homemade cards for school but my boys are still too young for me to get super excited about breaking out lots of paint, glitter, and glue… someday!
There are classroom Valentines ideas for each and every child below depending on what your child loves and the age of your child. Some of my classroom Valentines ideas include snacks, some include toys, and some include activity items. It really depends on what your + your school’s preferences are. My one tip would be to order your Valentines ASAP because customizing them with your child’s name does take a bit of time and Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it. I hope you find this post helpful and it takes Valentines the research (that comes with motherhood) off your plate.
Classroom Valentines Ideas
To assemble your classroom Valentines, I suggest ordering these clear gift bags (pick a size depending on the size of the treat you put inside) and a sweet little ribbon to tie the bags up with.
Rowan is dinosaur obsessed! So, I went with a dinosaur theme again this year and picked out these You’re Dinomite cards (I also adore these You’re T-rific cards) with dinosaur bubbles or dinosaur bath bombs – I need to decide and order that component of the Valentines. You can also make these cards as stickers too, which is really adorable!
I selected both cards from HoneyBespoke! She is a mother of three littles who runs her paper business on the side as a creative outlet. I love supporting mothers and women with small businesses in my personal life and love that my blog gives me an additional way to support. She has so many precious customizable Valentines (they can all be done as stickers too!) along with so many other fantastic paper goods. Plus, there’s nothing better than a new Etsy discovery!
