10 Unique Non-Candy Valentines

By  | 

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it! Some classrooms don’t allow treats and sometimes it is just nice to have an alternative to sweets. To that end, I’ve found some unique no candy Valentine’s Day ideas. The Glow Stick Valentine, Bouncy Ball Valentine, DIY Arrow Valentines, and Valentine Sticker Toppers are great alternatives to taking candy to the classroom. What boy wouldn’t be excited to receive the “I Like How You Roll” construction truck Valentine or Hot Wheels printable Valentine? And you’ve got to check out the bubbles valentine gift, “You Rock My Socks Off” valentine, “Whoopee it’s Valentine’s Day”, and the ruler gift idea as well!
