This year, I decided to skip pre-made gifts for Valentine’s Day and create my very own valentines for my students! I love getting crafty and creative, especially around the holidays and for special occasions… Valentine’s Day being one of them. I kept thinking of different ways to gift candy, snacks, and accessories and couldn’t choose just one idea, so I came up with six different ideas. Check out below to see how I put together the sweetest set of valentines for my students using $1 candies, craft supplies, and household items from Dollar Tree!
