What with vacation and illnesses, Valentine's Day has snuck up on us! We needed some easy and quick Valentine ideas. Enter Family Fun magazine. We were able to use two of the ideas from the February issue.

First up, preschool Valentines for Bug's class. To make these you need Teddy Grahams, Gummi Bears, small plastic bags (we used snack sized), cardstock and staples.

Fill each baggie with a small handful of Teddy Grahams and a few Gummi Bears. Use a word processing program to fashion some simple cards. We used the phrase "A Big Bear Hug" and some clip art from Microsoft. I printed the cards on white cardstock, cut them out and stapled them to the bags. Easy Peasy!

Boo's school does not allow candy or food to be passed out with Valentines. Therefore, we are one of the probably 26 families who will be passing out pencil cards this year. For this we used a box of 30 pencils, cardstock, a hole punch and a class list.
Again we used a word processing program and various heart images to create tags. Boo added her name and her friends names to the tags. Then we punched a hole in each end of the tag and pushed the pencil through. Ta-da!

    So where did all the witty phrases come from?? :)

    WAY back in my school days, we came home with a bag of valentines - usually the silly simple store-bought ones, but occasionally a home-made one complete with paper doily. Certainly no candy and no gifts! We were happy. BUT, these valentines are darling! Great job, gals!
