While I love candy as much as the next gal, I am not a huge fan of my kids bringing home a bag full of it for every holiday!!! For Valentine's Day, we opt for non-candy Valentine's Day exchange cards and goodies for our 5 year old, 4 year old and 2 year old. Every year, I have let the older 2 pick from a variety of ideas so they feel part of the process. Then, we shop for the goodies, print the personalized cards and assemble the items together. Here are my Top 5 pics for non-candy Valentine's Day exchange cards for this year!
These sunglasses, available in a variety of colors, from Oriental Trading are the perfect non-candy Valentine for children of all ages. Simply print the personalized cards, trim, punch two hols at either end of the card and thread the sunglasses, crossing in the back to hold.
2. Toy Soldiers
These toy soldier valentines were a hit with our 5 year old son this year, and a favorite among classmates who received them. After all, what little guys (and some girls) don't love playing with these age-old toys.
3. "I Pick You, Valentine"
When I stumbled upon these silly nose pencil sharpeners from Oriental Trading, I couldn't resist creating a Valentine designed to make people laugh (or grossed out a little) when they saw them.
4. "I Must-ache You to Be Mine, Valentine"
Mustaches have been a hit for some time! So, we couldn't resist creating a sweet Valentine to pair with these super fun mustache whistles.
5. "You Light up my Life, Valentine"
Glow sticks are a great non-candy Valentine's Day treat, enjoyed by both boys and girls. To assemble, punch holes at the top and bottom of the tag and thread the glow stick through the top, down the back of the card and then up through the front of the card.
We hope these 5 simple non-candy Valentine's Day exchange card ideas provide you with some fun inspiration for your child's class this year' Be sure to browse our large selection of over 60 Valentine's Day Exchange cards for more ideas!
