Toddler Valentine Ideas

Standard

My son, Cade won’t be at daycare on Valentine’s Day so I sent his Valentine’s for his friends today. They are all toddler’s and don’t really get the idea of Valentine’s day so I wanted to include a treat with the Valentine. Guess where the idea came from…….yep, you guessed it, Pinterest! The whole thing cost me $4.00 for 7 Valentine’s (with 2 packs of goldfish left over) and I must say they ended up pretty cute.

I bought the sweet variety of goldfish crackers, it is Valentine’s day after all. 9 come in a pack for around $4 at your grocery store (look for them on sale or find a coupon). I made the Valentine’s on the computer with the business card template and then cut them out and taped them to pack of goldfish. Cheap, easy, cute and the kids will love getting a snack! Follow me on Pinterest to see where I get some of my inspiration for my ideas. https://pinterest.com/kelseydavies/

My other favorites were a small plastic shovel placed in a clear treat bag, then fill the bottom of the bag with some type of treat and tie the top with a tag that says “I Dig You”. Another fish idea is Swedish Fish in a clear treat bag tied up to make it look like fish you bring home from the pet store with a tag that says “Out of all the fish in the sea, I’m glad we’re in the same school”. Instead of a treat, a cute toy option is a Hot Wheels car with a Valentine that says “I wheelie like you”. Lastly, a 2 pack of Starburst taped to a Valentine that says “You’re a star”. I’d love to see the Valentine’s you or your children have created, share them with me here!

  1. We did airplanes out of smarties and gummy lifesavers. I had smarties left over from Halloween and the valentines (wings for the plane) cost me $1! They were cars ones too and there were 32 of them which is way more than we needed. I liked this because he has one year olds to give them to since he is at an in home daycare. Of course I got the idea from pinterest too.
