14 classmate valentine ideas


I feel like I was just posting about Christmas and yet here I am with a roundup of Valentine ideas. Before we know it it’ll be time to be sharing Christmas posts again.

I can’t decide if that’s slightly depressing or not.

Time passing too quickly aside, I have always loved Valentine’s Day no matter what my romantic situation has been. Any holiday to help spread and share love is okay by me, even if some people do complain about the commercial aspect of it. I feel like having kids brings a whole new level of fun to holidays and Valentine’s Day is no exception. I always look forward to planning out classmate valentines with my little ones so today I’m sharing 14 classmate valentine ideas–that aren’t food.

valentine ideas that aren't candy

“You blow me away Valentine” bubbles

“Love is a battlefield” army men

“Sip, Sip, Hooray!” straws

You rule valentine

a-doh-able valentine

printable cootie catcher

“Write stuff” maze

friendship bracelet valentines

“You make my heart glow” glowsticks

Love Bug hand sanitizer

Be Mine, Valen-Slime

I can sea that you are a great friend

“You make my heart pop” balloons

“You have mad skillz” madlibs


How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? Does your child know what they want to pass out yet?

    Um these are all brilliant. My kids aren’t in school yet, but I’m totally pinning this post for next year. The bubbles one – I love a good pun!

    Super cute ideas! I love the non-food Valentines so much more now that I have a child with food allergies.

    YESSSSS. I’ve been meaning to start working on V-Day ideas that weren’t candy, and you’ve listed so many cute ones!! The Love Bug sanitizer is really drawing me in; all the kids at school have been so generous in passing around all their fun germs lately. A little sanitizer might go a long way!

    We need to start doing my sons vday cards soon and this list is perfect. His teacher is requiring no candy so all of this will come handy for me as we decide what he’ll want to do. The bubbles is my fav

    These ideas are so smart. We were so lame this year and just bought cards šŸ˜³. Makes me wish I had put more thought into it.

    This is such a great idea. I’ll see if my step daughter would love to do this. Thank you for sharing.

    Great ideas! I’m a big fan of the non-food Valentines!

    All the praise hands for this post! SERIOUSLY. No more candy, please! Plus, I needed ideas for my daughter’s Valentines so this post is perfect!

    We are giving away bubble. Because I’m that mom who gives a child something messy.

  17. Jessica February 7, 2017 at 2:45 pm #

    Love these! I’ve done bubbles from my son before and am using them again this year with my daughter’s valentines. I actually have a piece of chocolate that goes along with my son’s this year because it was the only thing I could figure out to work with the theme, but I usually steer away from it. Great ideas!
