When we found out that my daughter gets to take Valentine’s Day treats to her friends at preschool, she was super excited. I however, wondered what I could pull together using something I already had. Not that it was last minute or anything. We still had a week to get it done. But I love having the kids help putting their classroom valentines together and I didn’t want to have to go out and spend anymore money.
I remembered I had these mini air heads candies left over from the holidays. We always have extra candy laying around that I want to use up, but not necessarily let the kids eat. So I decided I would make up a fun printable that we could attach our candy to and call it good. These stay sweet classroom valentines are perfect for any sweet treat you have. Even if they were all different kinds of candy, that would work too. I printed them out and cut them apart. I had my daughter write her name on all the cards. That was what the teachers at the preschool wanted. They want all the kids to practice writing their names since that is what they are working on at preschool. I put a glue dot on each card and my daughter placed the candy on the card.
