Be My (non candy) Valentine!

With next week being Valentines day, our family did our usual trip over to Target to let Frankie pick out his valentines. Even though he isn’t in school until next year, he loves handing them out to our family and friends!

With his first year of school coming so quickly, it got me thinking about next year, and what fun things we could create at home for Frankie to hand out to his classmates.So off to Pinterest I went!

Valentines Day is usually a day filled with chocolates and candy. I know some schools and frown upon bringing non healthy treats to school and I’m sure other parents would appreciate them getting less sweets to add to that inevitable high that always seems to follow! (Myself included!)

I found some ideas that I thought little ones would enjoy even more than chocolate! (Hard to believe, I know..)
