Fabulicious Friday #37: Valentine's Edition

I've noticed that a lot of readers are looking for some fun Valentine's Day ideas! Look no further-I've hunted down all sorts of fun cards, treats, and even some books for you to check out.

1. Valentine Activities:

The Love Bugs

The best part about being a kid is pretending...this family created a mini mailbox, and then the kids left messages for "The Love Bugs", who answered back and sometimes left a treat. What a fun tradition!

Love U Bingo

2. Non-candy Valentines for the classroom

For kids who have allergies or who are on special diets, or those that are just trying to be healthier, these valentines fit the bill- and are adorable, too!

Seed packet Valentines
Crayon Hearts
Foam Pencil Pals
Cupid Pencils
Valentine Bookmarks
Play dough Hearts

3. Sweet Treats! Stuff to bake and share.

Package up any of these home made treats in a small clear bag, tie with ribbon, and they will make a delicious Valentine's treat for a friend or neighbor! Or you could wrap the cookies up with this great idea.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Chocolate Coconut Freezer Cookies
Double Fudge Cookies
Chocolate Caramel Brownies
Chocolate Rice Krispie Squares
Chocolate Ganache filled Cookies (try cutting them into hearts instead of rectangles)
Chocolate Candy Crinkles (experiment with using different flavors of Hershey's kisses)
Chocolate Orange Cookies
Cappuccino Cheesecake Brownies
Chocolate Cherry Mice (the article says Christmas, but they would make a cute Valentine's Day treat too)

4. Valentines for the classroom:
Puppy Valentines (these would be cute with a doggy treat shaped cookie!)
Cookie Pops!
Heart and Lollipop Flowers
Teacher gift: Valentine tea bags
Chocolate Kiss Mice
Alien Hearts
Playing Card Valentines
Candy Airplanes (you have to look at this one-it's so cool!)
Fishy Valentines (this one could have a small sparkly scale added to it to resemble "Rainbow Fish")

5. Great Valentine Books/books about friendship

The Rainbow Fish
Love You Forever
Guess How Much I Love You
Franklin's Valentines
My Froggy Valentine
