I need cute inexpensive gifts for Valentines Day for the class. I asked the teacher if there was a card exchange and she said yes, I asked if we would get a list and again yes. Then she said "Alex's mom said she cant wait to see what you think of for Valentines Day you have been so crafty for all of the holidays so far" Well I was planning to sort of repeat what I did for Halloween, but  not now. LOL. I need something cute, new and creative, but have to much stress to think to much. LOL HELP

What I was thinking about doing was baking some cookies, and putting them in those cute little, clear plasic baggies (with the hearts on them of course :) and tying them off with a ribbon, with the v-day card attached to it. Kind of like a present with the "to" "from" tag on it. I figure if I have my son pick out what cards he wants, he can write on them, we can bake together and set them up together. Just an idea. Good luck!

These are so cute. I'd just go to the dollar store and buy the small cady bars. Heres a Valentine Butterfly/Dragonfly

DLTK's Holiday Activities for Kids
Candy Valentine Butterfly (or Dragonfly)

This is a great craft/Valentine card/Valentine treat for children to make for their friends, family or classmates.

My youngest daughter calls it a butterfly and my oldest calls it a dragonfly.

Thanks to Georgia for sending this idea in!

Aunty Lisa adds:  if you're a scrapbooker, you can use a scrapbook heart punch to quickly punch out perfect little heart shaped wings!

Materials:

paper

glue

scissors

small candy bars (mini bars) or stick of gum

Directions:

Print out the template of choice.
  
Color (where appropriate).
  
Cut out the template pieces.
    
Glue pieces together:
 
Glue the small candy bar or gum stick on as the body of the butterfly (dragonfly)


This is the quick template just print and glue the candy bar.

These are cute and you could make them in REd and Pink and put candy hearts in them or something like that!

 I took brown paper bags and added twine to make them easy to hold . Then I took some red felt (you can get for 15 cents at the craft store) and made hearts all over them and then I bought some cheep pink (for the girls) and red ( for the boys) buttons and equally that many little bows and just glued them to the lunch bags to make the bag pretty. Then I bought those little candies, hearted pencils and some valentine cookies that I bought in bulk and other goodies to put inside. They turned out so cute and all the kids and teachers loved them.

Love that idea...

I was thinking of doing something very similiar for my daughter's high school graduation party...except the cookies would be in the shape of graduation hats instead...

I love this idea!!!  I have the same problem with my daughter's class.  There are several kids with severe food allergies.  The pencils will be perfect!
