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 😉

Snowman Family Christmas Ornament

I wanted to do a fun Christmas ornament with the kids this year to give as a gift to the grandparents. I found many on Pinterest and really liked the look of the Snowman Handprint Ornament. It looks like the original post was on this website.

The only thing that was wrong with this ornament was the fact that I have 8 ornaments to make and 2 kids. So that would be 16 ornaments all together. Seemed like too much to try and get done before Christmas. So I decided to make these ornaments personalized to our family. Each of our fingerprints for each snowman.
