Classroom Valentines Ideas

filed under:

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 his preschool class. 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.

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 this year and picked out these ‘You’re Dinomite’ cards with dinosaur sticker sheets and glow in the dark dinosaurs. I put 3 glow in the dark dinosaurs in each bag and one sheet of dinosaur stickers in each bag (I cut the sticker sheets in half to fit in the bag size I bought).
