8 Non Candy Valentine’s Day Ideas For Kids

Valentine’s Day is coming! Which means we’re on the hunt for Valentine’s Day ideas for our kids. (Preferably the non-candy Valentine’s Day ideas.)

And if I’m being honest…I’m still pretty worn out from THE holidays. I mean, there are still Christmas gifts in my living room, so it seems like it wasn’t that long ago…

While you’re judging my spectacular ability to drag my feet, please enjoy the benefit of my laziness…THESE 8 Non Candy Valentines Day Ideas For Kids!

I can’t take the credit—this was a lazy team effort by Melanie and Rachael too. We really just wanted this to be easy on all of us this year. Maybe it was the hours I spent last year exacto-knifing tiny wrappers onto a very specific candy that required multiple trips to the store to secure 25 of the right flavor of aforementioned candy that made me stand up and shout “AMEN” when Melanie and Rachael shared this idea with me.

All of these fun Valentine’s ideas are easy to assemble. Just download the PDF file, print and cut the cards, and place inside a cellophane bag with the toy. Tie with cute bakers twine and YOU’RE DONE! Bonus? You can get all of the items here via Amazon Prime, delivered right to your doorstep. Extra bonus? These printables are FREE!

So easy your kids can put their own Valentine’s Day cards together.

And because we’re all still working on our leftover Christmas candy, these are non-candy treats.

YOU’RE WELCOME.

XOXOX,
The Lazy Today’s Mama Team
