Today I’m excited to share two simple and inexpensive non-candy classroom Valentine ideas that are so darn cute! Plus, I’ve included the corresponding printable labels for you to print for FREE.
First, check out how you can transform pencils into an adorable treat for Valentine’s Day.
Printing on a thicker paper or card stock is definitely recommended. After cutting out your hearts, punch holes on both sides to slide a pencil through. Note: You may have to punch a few times with a standard whole punch to create a large enough hole.
You can also use the free printable label to create this cute pencil arrow craft! Just glue the label to two pieces of larger heart shaped scrapbook or construction paper. Then twist some pipe cleaners around one end of the “arrow” and tape two small hearts to the tip of the pencil.
I found these sweet pencils at Target’s Dollar Spot priced around 7 for $1.
And here’s one more idea that is cheap and easy too! Buy glow stick bracelets (you can typically find them priced around 7 for $1 at Dollar Tree or Target’s Dollar Spot). Use this FREE printable label that I designed in black ink – have the kids color the label in fluorescent colored markers, highlighters, or crayons.
