valentines, “gal”entines, or “pal”entines

Have you gotten supplies for Valentine’s Day yet? I’ve had it on my mind, looking at all of the edible and non edible options, but I didn’t commit to anything until this morning. I find that keeping it simple makes every holiday more fun for me with kiddos. Look at how cute keeping it simple can be!

I always start by finding a pack of party toys. I looked through an Oriental Trading catalog, but decided I didn’t want to risk cutting timing close with shipping. I might try that next year! Here were some options I found at my closest store.

The next step is to come up with a clever pun or corny compliment:

  • you’re pretty “sharp”–pencil sharpeners (hot item in classrooms where kids aren’t allowed to get up to sharpen pencils!!–so I hear!)
  • you’re all-“write”–pencils
  • I think you’re “fly”– toy airplane
  • We’re so “mint” to be–mints
  • you make my heart “saur”–toy dinosaurs
  • you’re the coolest thing on wheels–mini skateboards, toy cars

Here are some templates you can download in our Freebies section and print on card stock!

To attach the toy, I used blue sticky tak.
