  • When my kids were that age I would sometimes put a hershey kiss on the envelope with tape. I didn't want to give a lot because they came home from school bouncing off the walls with all the sugar they had at the classroom party. It's also not Halloween.

  • My daughter is giving the Fun Dip packs away with the Valentine's. We will also make some marshmallow pops and give those out (but since I know not all parents will allow their kids to eat something homemade, that's why we are doing the Fun Dip too).

  • I do because I freakin' feel obligated! I usually tape a sucker to the card or buy the tattoo/sticker valentines.

  • My son choose tattoo valentines and his teacher promotes giving things like pencils and those little toys for all the holidays instead of the sugar. Personally my son doesn't like sweets much and brings most of them home where they get thrown out or he trades them at school with the other kids for the toy things.

  • sometimes I do a goodie bag, I will put a valentine eraser, note pad, pencil, cinammon hearts, and a chocolate heart.
    This past year and this year I just do homemade valentines, they take awhile and turn out pretty nice, so I just help them with those, the kids friends loved them last year! They are all different.
