Candy-Free Classroom Valentines

February 5, 2016 — Leave a Comment

Since Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, our school Valentine’s Day parties are happening one week from today. So exciting! My kids had a blast, as usual, choosing classroom Valentines from Minted, and can’t wait to hand them out to their friends next Friday afternoon. But I, the mother, have a confession to make: there’s a little part of me that dreads school holiday parties because my kids come home with so much candy. We don’t have a ton of candy around the house in general, so the moderate influx after school parties isn’t all that bad, I just don’t love having paper bags full of candy laying around for days on end. And my husband is a dentist, so he really doesn’t love the paper bags full of candy! I’d much rather have my kids come home from school with a bag full of candy-free classroom Valentines.


In the spirit of cavity-free teeth and healthy living, I have some fun, dentist-friendly classroom Valentines ideas to share with you today. These are some of our favorite classroom Valentines from Minted paired with cute, non-candy treats and trinkets that kids will love.
