  • We usually do them a few days before the parties. I make up treat bags for both of my sons' classes. I include some candy and sometimes little toys, and a card.

  • I always do treat bags for Valentines and Halloween. This is my oldest son's last year in elementary school, and I only have four more years left with my youngest son, so I won't be able to do it too much longer.

  • i guess ill do it for my kindergartner as soon as her teacher sends out a list of how many kids are in her class & their names. if she doesn't do it then i'll either request it myself next week or just send them blank with just my daughter's name as the sender. for now im still working on home projects for V-day

  • for kindergarten i sent them blank because most kids in kindergarten can't read names and the teacher doesn't have time to help 30 students pass out there cards..

  • Whenever the teacher sends home the list or info. I actually just got done putting it all together. The lists came home yesterday. We don't write out names on all the cards except who it's from. For my eldest her cards will go with her to school on Monday so she can turn them in early (Teacher has boxes for all the kids and we can turn in Valentines from Moday until the day of the party). And the youngest will have hers sent to school with her on the day of the party.

  • I am not sure if my DS teacher is doing anything for Valentine's day because there is kids in the class that don't celebrate.

  • We got the list on Wednesday of the kids' names in the class and had the cards a few days before that. We will probably start making them out next weekend...that and making her Valentine Mailbox for school.

  • I buy the cards early, then wait for a class list from the teacher to get them done.
