Valentine's Day with Food Allergies

1. “You Blow Me Away” Bubbles Valentine

This super cute idea from Makely Home is a great way to make a fun, no-mess valentine. All you need is the free printable, some bubbles from your local dollar store, and some ribbon! It will be sure to blow your kids away! Pun intended :) of course!

2. “You’re Out of This World” Valentine

This clever idea from Zakka Life is awesome for your little guys who aren’t too into making valentines. It’s super easy to put together, and they can make each one unique by creating different scenery on each card. And if you really want to get into it, we suggest using glow in the dark markers to give it that extra pop! :)

4. “You Are Ah-MAZE-ing” Valentine

Balancing Home really killed it with this one. I mean c’mon … does it get any cuter than this? You may have to spend a little more time on it because of the cutouts for the arrow, but it’s totally worth it! And if you’re really crunched for time, just leave the pencil as is and it will still come out great :)

This is another great valentine for little Star Wars fans. Our project manager, Alayna, is doing these with her son for his classmates! We are sure he is not the only Star Wars-obsessed little kid this Valentine’s Day season. Check out the printables at Design. Wash. Rinse. Repeat!

I’m personally in love with this one, and I guarantee your kids will be, too. The best part is how fast and mess-free these are. Just grab the free printable from Thirty Handmade Days, go to your local craft/dollar store and pick up some fun slinkys and you’re all set!

7. “Color Your Heart Out” Valentine

The second I saw this I thought it was such a cool idea. The thing I like best about it is that it’s gender neutral! So your little guy and girl could make them together. Check out the step-by-step directions to make these at The Nerd’s Wife. Oh, and just a little piece of advice, don’t use washable crayons. We learned from experience :)

This has got to be the funniest valentine I’ve ever laid eyes on. Although you may want to check with a teacher first before handing these babies out, these will definitely bring lots of laughs to the classroom! Check out the hilarious story behind why these were created at Paging Supermom.

    I wanted to pop by and let you ladies know you’re making a difference. I am Mom to non-allergy toddler who goes to a preschool with no food restrictions. But because I follow this blog and I was determined to give non-candy valentines this year. We ended up doing puzzles from the dollar store. Easy Peasy. Thanks for all your hard work on raising awareness.
