Glad We’re in the Same “School”
These are great for classroom card exchanges. All you need is a clear plastic bag, some Swedish Fish or Goldfish Crackers, and a piece of paper with a fishbowl on it. The fishbowls can be drawn on or you can find a a free downloadable print out online. Place the card inside, fill the bag with some “fish” and you’ve got yourself the perfect school Valentine!
You’re One in a “Minion”
This craft involves a box of Twinkies, blue construction paper, googly eyes and tinfoil to turn these ordinary treats into lovable minions.
Using construction paper and markers, make a mask and cape to fit the lollipop. Secure with some tape and you have a “super” Valentine!
I “Dig” You Valentine
You can use any candy for these such as candy hearts, M&M’s, or Hershey Kisses. Find Valentine’s Day treat bags and fill them up with candy. Place small plastic beach shovels in each bag and tie with ribbon around the handle. Add a cute tag that says “I Dig You Valentine” and you’re done! These are perfect for classroom parties and card exchanges.
“Nacho” Average Valentine
This cute Valentine is simply a snack sized bag of Doritos with a tag on it saying “Nacho Average Valentine.” These are cute and easy to make.
