10 Non-Candy Valentine Ideas

by Totspot Team

A lot of schools no longer allow candy in the classroom which means that when it comes to Valentine’s Day, we parents have to be a bit more creative than our own parents were. You can no longer make for a bag of mini M&Ms the day before…but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of reasons to still love V-Day.

And we’ve got 10. Yep, 10 non-candy valentine ideas that absolutely make our hearts sing we heart Valentine’s Day. So much cooler than the valentines we got as kids, these little gifts encourage healthy eating, technology-free playtime, and creativity. Kudos to the moms who created each.
