The Big Deal of Valentine’s Day Cards for Kids
So I hear Valentine’s Day in a kid’s classroom is a pretty big deal these days – and has gotten really complicated! It was a lot simpler when we were kids – you just went to the store, grabbed a box of Garfield cards, signed your name and gave them out. Today, it’s all about class lists, non-candy cards, ones for boys, ones for girls, gender-neutral cards…enough to drive a mom crazy, right?!?
My boys aren’t quite 3 yet, but I don’t know if I’m looking forward to all this! I might just be ‘that mom’ who buys the generic box cards from Target (and by the way, totally OK if you are ‘that mom,’ too!)
Definitely no need to add that kind of pressure on yourself – because who are we kidding? The stress is going to fall on you!
Valentine’s Day Card Hack: Creative & Easy Printable
BUT, if you have the time and energy to be creative, but maybe not the time or energy to do the creating yourself, here are 25+ classroom card ideas that are easy and clever. And, there are lots of options – treats, non-candy, for boys, for girls. Just find the one that suits your child’s high maintenance classroom the best. 😉 All of them come with free printables, so just click, print and add your treat.
I’m certainly not advocating the need for you to keep up with the rest of the class if that doesn’t suit your lifestyle or what you’re trying to teach your kids. However, if you choose to go the creative, clever route, I definitely vote for getting your kids involved – even if it is a little more work for you. It teaches them that this is for THEIR classmates, from THEM, and THEY should be involved. And it also teaches them they should help with tasks that they are able to help with! (Just my two cents’ worth).
