I had purchased some $1 note pads and pen packs back in January and knew I would make simple Valentine treats for the teachers. I used the same idea I used back in December for the preschool teachers and just used one sheet of paper to make a cute little wrapping for the notepad, tied it with ribbon, added the pen and an easy tag I made on the computer and punch out with a circle punch.
Then for the boys I thought the You Rule idea found here was too cute to pass up (and it was super easy with the free printable).
Lastly, for the girls I wanted to use my Silhouette Cameo that I received for Christmas since I had not used it so I did the butterfly lollipop holders for them. Very simple, I just let them put a couple stickers on each and they were done! It was nothing fancy but I am glad they all got done (early) and saved my a little bit of stress the night before.
I also made the girls some more bleach pen shirts by just freehand drawing some hearts on. Here is my MooMoo girl modeling hers :)
For my kids I just did small buckets with little a little candy, a few trinkets for the girls and some baseball cards for the boys. The girls also received balloons because they LOVE them and Mady has been asking for a heart balloon for weeks. The girls and I made these cute mailboxes for their American Girls a few nights before and so the AG's were SO lucky to find a card and a necklace in their mailboxes on Valentine's Day also. This cute idea came from right here! The only difference was I used a glass candle stick holder from the $ store versus a wood one to paint. You have to stop by The Real Thing with the Coake Family, I am just loving her blog!
