Are you looking for some other things to give to kids for Valentine's Day besides candy?
These little lip glosses are from the dollar bin at Michael's.
These spoons came from Hobby Lobby. I was inspired by Mary Poppins singing, "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go down...!" I wrote, "Just a spoonful of sugar...is what you are!" These would be cute dipped in chocolate or given with a coffee mug to a teacher.
Connectagons from HearthSong make a fun Valentine's gift. We could play with these for hours...HearthSong has different shapes, too!
Who doesn't love a good game of cards? This little heart stack came from Michael's.
Another non-candy option could be these little bubble wands located in the wedding section at Michaels. These make great party favors, too!
These Wilton lollipops came from the wedding section at Michael's, as well. Ribbon and stickers to print yourself are included and make a nice Valentine's sweet treat! Okay, so it wouldn't be Valentine's without some candy!
Pencils are a favorite goody bag gift...so practical, aren't they?
For a cost effective little gift, print some coloring sheets right from your computer and tie some crayons or colored pencils to the sheets. My favorite site for printing coloring sheets is here!
I am joining these weekly parties and a few special Valentine's parties!
Stop by Bargain Hunting with Laurie and see all the Valentine's Day fun!
A little disclaimer...I don't give goody bags for every holiday. With three kids and approximately 25 kids in each class, it could be costly to do for every holiday...plus, do our kids really need that much sugar?! Valentine's Day is the one holiday our schools will allow a party, so we usually join in on the fun for this holiday and spread the love! If you want to give little favors instead of candy, stock up after Valentine's Day for next year! And don't forget, you can print a 40% coupon to Michael's before you go! Happy Valentine's to you!
