DIY Valentines for the classroom that won’t break the bank!​

Head on over to Target!

Supplies needed:

  • Valentine Construction Paper ($4.00 x30 sheets)
  • Valentine foam stickers ($5.00)
  • Individual baggies ($1.50 x30)
  • Gold Ribbion ($1.50)
  • Chocolate kisses with writing on bottom ($3.59 per bag)
  • Bounce Balls ($3.00 x16)
  • Valentine Stencils ($3.00 x30)
  • Colored mechanical pencils ($2.89 x50)

I like making our own so much better than buying the pre packaged ones because it’s a fun craft to do with your kids and they can practice their cutting skills, decorate, and have enough room to write their classmates name on the front! (you know the pre made ones are seriously so tiny, so unless you want to write the names for your child let them make their own 🙂 Plus added bonus is extra handwriting practice!

What to buy the teachers

I think teachers are overwhelmed with getting boxes of chocolates and coffee mugs so I always try and think outside the box and get something thoughtful they might actually use 😉 Here is my gift guide below

What to buy the kids!

I don’t think the kids need big extravagant gifts, but I like to have something small for them every year on valentine’s day to celebrate the fun and loving day!

Hi friends! It's me thatocmomlife AKA Megan. I'm here to share with you guys all of our favorite places to go and the things we love! I love to showcase fun things to do with kids in the area, beauty products, shopping deals, and our travel adventures! I am a California girl, born and raised. I am married to an amazing man who happens to be Australian. We have two beautiful kids that we like to raise with the American roots and the Aussie roots too! Everything I share here, I truly believe in and I am a stickler with only working with companies that I have personally tried and am comfortable sharing. This platform has given me the greatest gift, and that is to be able to work from home and raise my kids! I am so grateful for all of the support and THANK YOU for following me and encouraging me every step of the way! XO - Megan
