Non Candy Valentine Ideas with Free Printables!

I’m not sure how we’re turning the corner to February already! My all time favorite candy comes out during Valentine’s Day (which means it’s been in the grocery stores since the day after Christmas). So far I’m keeping to my resolution of cutting back on added sugar, but I’m sure I’ll have to break down and buy at least one bag. Brach’s Cinnamon Jelly Hearts, why do you have to be so darn good!?

Carter’s new school has a no-candy Valentine rule for their annual “Friendship Party”. Typically we’ve made non-candy Valentines most years because for a while he didn’t really like much candy, except suckers (whose kid is he!?), so it isn’t a big change for us.

I thought a round up was in order to help you in case you were looking for similar ideas. Free printables available for all of them! (Some links may be affiliate links to Amazon or other trusted retailers).

It’s No S-T-R-E-T-C-H Being Your Friend! – We made these last year, but I never got around to posting about them. Here’s the link to buy the  Stretchy Smiley Guys on Amazon. I’m trying to locate the link to the printable, but otherwise, I made it for free on Canva.
