Top 10 Non-Candy Valentine's Day Ideas

By Jennifer Hill Macaroni Kid Fremont Publisher February 8, 2021

Valentine's Day is always such a fun holiday for the kids. Mine love perusing the Valentine's Day aisle at the store to choose their Valentine cards for their friends and classmates or even make their own some years (when mom is more on her game and we have more time). We have had to get really creative for Valentine add-ons that are not only "not candy," but also not food because of our school's restrictions.

Here are my top 10 non-candy Valentine's Day treats:

  1. Slime
  2. Pencils
  3. Glow sticks
  4. Bookmarks
  5. Bubbles
  6. Hot Wheels
  7. Lip balm
  8. Plastic animals or bugs
  9. Sports trading cards
  10. Stickers

A lot of these things can be found for a pretty good price if you look around some or buy in bulk online. Sometimes we find the add-on that we want and then create a card that coordinates. Whatever you do, enjoy these fun moments of excitement with your kids. They grow up way too fast these days!
