Less Food, More Fun
Need some ideas for food-free valentines? Valentine’s day often brings on tons of candy and baked goods. This can be an issue with dealing with food allergies or other dietary restrictions. Many classroom parties for kids are suggesting non-food treats which are a healthier and often less messy option. Avoiding a food-filled Valentine also means you won’t be excluding anyone who can’t participate due to a severe allergy. Here are some cute and creative ideas. Many of the links have free printables and tutorials. These are some really great alternative valentines ideas for school, daycare, or home parties! *this post contains some affiliate links
