Valentine’s Day has become one of my favorites to celebrate with the kids. Each year, I’ve gotten them each a couple little gifts that makes them feel loved. We also do a few activities together to make the day more special than others. Pink, heart shaped pancakes and pink milk for breakfast is my personal favorite. So with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would share VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR KIDS, as well as VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR THE CLASSROOM OR FRIENDS. I usually like to keep Valentine’s gifts simple, and usually keep them minimal by gifting just one or two small affordable items with candy and chocolate of course! A lot of the things I’ve included are under $40, and the kids will be sure to love them!
This year is a first for us, Edison choose Valentine Cards and gifts for his classroom and friends, go figure he picked cars! I know he will love handing them out and enjoy seeing his friends receive their cards. So I focused on sharing toys and activities with fun cards instead of candy for the kids. Kind of amazing right mamas?? less candy for our already active littles 🙂
Are there any traditions or activities you do with your kids for Valentine’s Day?
