Valentine's Day for the KIDS! -Classroom treats, advent calendar, teacher gifts and so much more!

My husband and I don't really celebrate Valentine's day. Why? Mostly because it feels forced and everything is way over priced. If he wants to buy me flowers or make me feel special, he can do that any day. :) With that said, I do go a little overboard with the kids. Why? I really don't know. I guess because it's fun to go overboard and I'm known for going overboard. Just a tad. Starting to see a theme here?

To kick off February I always have an advent calendar counting down until Valentine's Day. Boys LOVE this!

Inside the hearts are these super cute mini envelopes and I would like to think they are excited solely for the notes but I also include a Hersey Hug.



They are made from a HEART!!! Each once says why they are special. Tutorial HERE.



Need Valentine's Day PHOTO IDEAS?


Special HEART SANDWICH for lunch





I made this three years ago and we are still using the same one. I put it away in the closet and pull it out each year. No last minute scrambling. GENIUS! 




The boys always love to bring something for the teachers and classmates. Here are some things we've done in the past.

The boys made these for all their classmates and teachers


Dipped Strawberries (store bought or make yourself) packaged for easy carrying.
The boys gave these for teacher appreciation week but they would be perfect for Valentine's Day.




Cake baked in a jar!!! These are always a hit. We made these for Christmas last year and teacher appreciation the year before. So easy. Could do red velvet cake or strawberry and vanilla. Ooooh. Might have to make these this year too. Tutorial HERE.



Remember THESE rubber band bracelets my son was obsessed making!? He made Vday ones last year for the teachers and girls he wanted to bring a gift to.....yes, GIRLS with a S!!!! Oh dear!



So easy, makes a bunch and super cute! Can't wait to give these out this year.


Thank you for stopping by!
