Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and if you have kids, then you know this can be a stressful time. Coming up with cute and fun Valentines to give to classmates can be a struggle. With all the allergies and food sensitivities these days, I like to stay away from giving candy. But what can kids bring in to classmates? I have spent lots of time researching some fun trinkets so you don’t have to. These are The Best Non-Candy Valentines and they take all the guesswork out of classroom treats for the big day.

Looking for some fun activities to do with your kids? I highly recommend KiwiCo, which you can enjoy no matter the weather. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo.
Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
