No Candy Valentine Printable
Valentine’s Day is sort of a weird tradition in schools. You basically go reverse trick or treating with generic pieces of perforated paper that cost a fortune. The kids are even asked not to specifically address the valentines to classmates. And really, my kids hardly ever read the piece of paper. All they want is the candy (or the tattoos). So, this is my first attempt at a no-candy and no store bought valentine’s cards solution.
We ran a couple of ideas past the kids. I was thinking along the lines of “Valentine, we just make ‘cents'” but my kids thought that was lame. They actually came up with the idea of doing the “XOXO” and putting pennies for the “O’s”. I LOVE the idea! Cute, clever, creative, and my favorite: simple!
