13 Non-Food Valentine Ideas {with printables}


Since I've been SO conscious of what I'm eating on this fitness journey of mine...I've decided to change some of the things I do in my classroom as well.  My students will get PLENTY of candy and treats from their peers, so I decided to go the non-food route this year.  Once I went to Target, Hobby Lobby, and The Dollar Tree...I was SO inspired! Hopefully you can use these ideas for years to come and never have to repeat. :) I wanted the Valentine cards to be simple, but fun (and to save ink).
