Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for kids and adults.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love Valentine’s Day. I may love it more than my son does. What I don’t really enjoy is the constant onslaught of sweet treats. (Or the resulting sugar high and crash.) Don’t get me wrong, I am not the sugar police, but there is just so much leading up to Valentine’s Day. We decided not to join the sugar rush and to give Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Treats instead. I have to admit, we are really pleased with the results.

An Eco-Friendly Valentine

One year we made seed bombs for our non-candy Valentine’s Day treats. They were so much fun to make and a great introduction to plant science. Making the seed bombs is also a wonderful sensory activity.

Miniature Valentines

The next year Layton was obsessed with all things miniature. He was having a lot of fun collecting these teeny tiny rubber animals. We decided to use these non-candy Valentine’s Day treats in place of an edible treat for his classroom Valentines.  It did take some time to assemble, but it was a fun project for my boy. You can download printable Valentines here.

Valentines With a Sense of Humor

I love creating fun valentines for Layton and his school friends! I found these funny pencil sharpeners on Amazon and I just knew I had to incorporate them into his valentines. They were perfect for our non-candy Valentine’s Day treats. I am looking forward to assembling the rest with tonight with Layton!

We hope that you enjoy our Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Treats!

Next year, I am thinking of using the light bulb sharpeners or the glow sticks with a note, “You light up my life!”
