Goodie Bags for Your Kid's Valentine’s Day School Party 

You can never go over the top with Valentine’s Day celebrations and traditions. It is one of those rare days when romantic gestures are given extra value and importance. Whether you do something simple and sweet or choose to make the occasion in a grand way, this day is celebrated as widely in the streets as it is in schools, homes, and offices across the U.S.

For this year’s Valentine’s Day party in your child’s school, you can use some of these fun but practical Valentine’s Day goodie bag ideas!

How do you make Valentine’s Day goodie bags?

Add your personal touch to the otherwise regular favor bags to make them extra special! Cut up rectangles from leftover drop cloth and lots of hearts from red fabric scraps. Sew in hearts on a piece of cloth with zig zag stitches. Fold the piece of cloth to make little pouches and glue them if you are tired of stitching! There you go - your adorable Valentine’s Day goodie bag is ready!

What to put in the Valentine’s Day goodie bags?

Play dough – Pick up two boxes of play dough, depending on the size of the class. You might even start thinking ahead. After all, Black Friday is a good time to pick up items for a Valentine’s Day goodie bag since you are sure to get some great discounts on all your purchases. Create fun circular labels, the size of the play dough lids, that say ‘Dough You Want to Be My Valentine?’ in bold colors. Stick them on the lids and you have sunny, bright little play dough tubs to be given away as Valentine’s Day treats! This is a great alternative to some of those more sugary surprises that will be in surplus during this season of the year.

Gather all the old crayons in the house or get new ones if you’re running out of them! Peel off their labels and break them into small pieces; the smaller the pieces the better. Sort them according to their color families. Get a heart shaped silicon baking mold and sprinkle 1 /4 th teaspoon of silver glitter on the bottom of the baking molds. Next, fill up 1/3rd of the molds with crayons. Place them in your oven that has been pre-heated to 300 degrees and bake the crayons for 15 minutes. Take out the melted crayons and keep them on a table to cool. Wait for about 20 minutes or until the crayons are solid again and then gently remove them from the mold and let them cool completely. Wrap each heart in colorful construction paper and tie them with attractive strings to put them into the Valentine’s Day goodie bag.
