If you have school-aged children, you will sometime within the next month probably be scouring the shelves at your local Target for Valentines. (And if you’re like me, it will probably be the night before the big party!) I love the holiday focus on love and friendship, but no so much the sugar high and subsequent crash. So if you’re looking for some healthier alternatives for classroom Valentine treats, here’s a few options:
- prepackaged nuts (if allergies are not an issue)
- homemade friendship bracelets
- temporary tattoos
- silly straws
- homemade crayons
For an inexpensive teacher Valentine how about a $5 gift card for the nearest coffee shop? I bet a good cappuccino after the big classroom party will be just the thing they need!
