What did you do(or plan to do) for your kids school valentines?

My son is in Kindergarten so this will be his first school valentines day. When I was a kid all I did was buy some v-day cards. No candy or anything. Anyone have any cute/fun ideas?

  • I got my son a stamp with his name on it so when he gives up writing his name 20 times he stamps. This year cards come with little heart cookie cutters and a recipe for cookies. Last year we did cheapy glow sticks, you light up my day.

  • I'll buy them whatever cheapies they want. Teachers have requested no candy so I might see if we can find some with pencils or something.

  • I always make up treat bags for my kids. They pick the cards, and I slap a "Happy Valentine's Day from Jacob" (or Kyle), and drop one into little heart bags with a few pieces of candy and some other little treats. Then I bring in cupcakes or whatever the teachers suggest, and I help out at their parties.

  • DS1 is in high school and on his own.

    DD and DS2's school does not do Valentine's Day. It's a private Jewish school, and frankly, it's not our holiday. They do study things like Thanksgiving, Martin Luther King Day and President's day, plus all of our holidays. It works for me.

  • Fiat- I will definitely have problems with signing his name too! Most of time he doesnt even finish writing it on his worksheets!
    As for writing each kids name on them...we dont have to do that. They didnt give us a list with all the names.

  • We aren't allowed to put candy in the cards, so my daughter is giving out temporary tattoos.
