Healthier School Valentine Alternatives

Healthier Valentine Alternatives - by Little Spoons and Spice

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means the stores are piled with candy and chocolate-filled valentines.  Even though your kids love candy and chocolate, it doesn’t mean we need to add to the sugar craze…honestly they will probably get enough at school.  This year, try to step outside the box and send a healthier valentine.  You know…it’s okay to send just a paper valentine.  When I was a kid, paper valentines were all we got. And I loved opening each and every one of them.

If you do want to include something with your child’s valentine, here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Bubbles
    • “You’re Friendship BLOWS Me Away”
    • “I’m BLOWN away by you”
    • “You make my heart BUBBLE”
    • I’m BUBBLING with excitement that you’re my friend”
  • Stickers
