My boys gave cards and candy.  My 5 year old gave little crunch bars with his and my oldest gave mini M&Ms.

Normally I make cupcakes and send cards.  This year I had too much going on so I purchased bag candy and cards. 


Proud Mommy to a 10 year old very handsome son, a 6 year old DIVA, and a 1 year old Princess. Even prouder step-mommy to a smart 14 year old son who has a girlfriend, a Beautiful 10 year old Daddy's Girl, and a super talented 9 year old Angel.  Our house is full most of the time but we love it.  All of our kids have co-slept, are vaccaniated, and eat fast-food occassionally!  I bake cookies, cakes and brownies for no reason at allMy 1 year old is off the bottle but still takes the binkie and she STILL drinks formula!  We Love Wal*Mart!  Don't like it ... TOO BAD!

I bought Valentine's at Friendly's. They were $1 for 5 cards, and each card is good for a free ice cream cone.  Plus the money went to charity.

I did up treat bags with candy, tattoos and pencils.

We sent cards and candy, he gave all the girls Krispy Kreme donut valentines (good for a free donut) and the boys got Kung Fu Panda. The whole class got sweet tarts. I have in the past always made cookies on a stick, but we were not allowed to make home made anything this year. His brother did the same for his class.

I sent in cards that came with lollipops and a bag of pretzels for the party and I also went & volunterred in the classroom for the party.

I know what you mean. My daughter also came home with lots of bags & stuff. I would love to make bags for the class but with the 2 girls in school that would be like 40 bags. LOL
