DIY Candy-Free Valentines for Kids
I’m trying to get ahead of Valentine’s Day this year. Last year, a terrible bug worked its way through our family leaving me completely unprepared when February 14 arrived. So, even though it’s a month away, I’m planning to get my valentines going now. This year, I wanted to make something cute for Liam’s classmates. At age 2.5, this is the first year he really has little “friends” in his class and I wanted to give them all something cute. I don’t want to do candy and with all the food allergies in his class, I decided it was best to stay away from anything edible all together. I’m leaning toward the “mini toy/pun” valentine with something Liam likes and that his classmates will like too.
Candy-Free Valentine Ideas
Here are nine adorable ideas for candy-free valentines that I found and love:
9. “I Choo-Choose You” Train Valentine (not pictured). I wasn’t able to find a train valentine. Liam is obsessed with trains so I’m thinking about using some these other ones as inspiration and creating a train version. If it works out, I’ll post it on the blog.
Happy early Valentine’s Day!
