    Easy Crayon Rainbow Valentine with Free Printable Tag

    Easy Crayon Rainbow Valentine

    Easy Crayon Rainbow Valentine

    This Easy Crayon Rainbow Valentine idea is a great idea for several reasons.  First of all, most kids absolutely LOVE receiving a new box of crayons.  New crayons mean a spark to new creativity!  February is also the perfect time of year for kids to get some new crayons, as the ones from September have been worn down to little stumps.  If you’re like me and you stock up like crazy during Back to School Sales, you could have picked up crayons for around 25 cents/box!  This is a great way to use up your stockpile and totally justify another stock-up next summer.  Finally, crayons make a great non-candy alternative for Valentine’s Day gifting.  I am always shocked to see how much candy comes home with my kids from their school Valentine’s party.  Last year Lily gave out rubber duck ponies and another year she gave out wildflower seed paper!

    A Perfect Match Chocolate Pretzel Valentine DIY + FREE Printable Tag

    Pretzel Match Valentine

    I love this idea for Valentines for a few reasons – it’s easy, it’s cheap and it’s very very cute!  The kids are still deciding what their Valentines will be this year, though I’m thinking it’s a great option for my firetruck loving boy.

    You should be able to find red candy melts online or at most craft stores, Walmart, etc around Valentine’s Day, BUT, if you happen to think ahead, you can  always grab some during Christmas clearance sales, lowering the cost of these treats even more.

    Be Mine, Valentine! Conversation Hearts Free Printable Tag

    Conversation Candy HeartsValentine Idea with Tag

    Not only are Conversation Hearts so bright and colorful, they are also incredibly affordable and 100% reminiscent of Valentine’s Day!  I also have a soft spot for glass milk bottles (you can grab them online or most craft stores sell them.  Sometimes I even see them in Target’s Dollar Spot).  They look so cute when filled with seasonal candies!  Combine the glass bottles with some Conversation Heart Candies and you have a quick and easy gift or home decor.

    A couple years ago I filled these bottles with red M&Ms and  loved the results.

    This year I decided to go with the candy hearts and create a matching tag.

    You will need:  Conversation Heart Candies, a glass milk bottle, twine and this printable tag
