5 Valentine Gift Ideas for School Kids

I really enjoy helping Liz get her valentines ready for school. I remember when I was a kid sitting at our kitchen table with my mom going thru the class list and making sure I had a valentine for each one. I can only hope that Liz will have the same memories. This year I have turned to Pinterest for ideas again….

Great ideas that your kids can take part in for creating a valentines gift for their friends, classmates and other family members.

These are some of my favorite Valenties gift ideas. I think they would all be great for a school aged child to make and give to their classmates.

Salt Dough Hearts! 

Make them into necklaces, bracelets, magnets, the possibilities are endless!!

Circle of Hearts Bracelet!

If you child loves Rainbow Loom this is a great option. Or if they are like mine and hardly ever touch it, it’s a great way to use up all the bands she “just had to have”

Cupcake Holder!

What a great way to make sure everyone gets one and keeps them safe during their travel to the school and home again. *If they make it home 😉

Thomas the Train Table Decorations… A to Z Challenge

This year for my sons birthday the theme was trains! He loves trains and of course it also had to be Thomas the Train.
We choose to decorate the table, something simple but fun. This led to the idea of trains holding most of the food.
