I love seeing all the creative handmade valentines on blogs and pinterest. I usually love designing and making my own too, but with a baby on the way I decided to check out what the stores offered for classroom style valentines this year.
I was actually surprised to find a great selection that even included small gifts at an inexpensive price. We purchased a pack of valentines at Walmart for $2.47 and they had similar sets at Target for $3.00. There were quite a few fun options to choose from, but my son immediately gravitated to the Disney Cars valentines that included pencils. It seems like all the kids in his class are really into erasing things right now, so whether they want to practice writing their name or just have fun with the eraser they should be a hit.
If you're looking for stamp markers, I also found cute Stamp Marker Activity Pads made by Melissa and Doug in pink and blue that would be perfect as a small gift, to put in an Easter basket, or just to have at the ready for rainy day fun. I ordered the blue one for my little guy and I already know which stamp marker will be his favorite...definitely the red car!
I would love to check out everyone's valentines! I've been busy pinning all sorts of fun Valentines Day inspiration on Pinterest.
Happy Valentines Day!
