Challenge: Be My Valentine

Something Other Than Candy

I know I'm the worst Valentine's treat providing parent--- I don't send the kids in with candy treats. I am always looking for ideas that aren't chocolate. I know, I know, let the kids enjoy the sweets. And they do. But honestly, we toss out most of the candy. Just in case there are any parents like us in their classrooms, I find budget friendly (and useful) items for Aubrey & Owen to pass out.

Thus, we gave out super cute bubbles! The best part? Total cost was $0.33 a piece!


What You Need

  • Small Bubbles
  • Printable (Download it here)
  • Scotch Tape

I found the bubbles at the Dollar Tree. They were in a package of 3 for the $1 price. When I looked at the traditional Valentine's at the drug stores, I was surprised at how much cheaper these actually were than the character paper Valentine's!


How to Make the Valentine's

Remove the bubble wrapper. Simply print off the printable. Trim the paper using the guideline. Then, tape in place.

Super easy and perfect for an entire class!
