Is your preschooler handing out Valentine's this year for Valentine's Day? It's always fun to exchange notes with friends and classmates to celebrate February 14. This year, instead of having your preschooler sign his or her name to boxed cards, try some of these fun and creative ideas instead.

Fun Ideas for Preschool Class Valentine's for Valentine's Day

You can put one of each of these items in a small bag with your child's name or include a few of each.

Also, check with your child's teacher if your Valentine's should be addressed to every child in the class or if they would prefer that your child just sign his or her name (it makes it easier to pass them out that way).

Non-food treats (all Valentine's Day themed)

To find these items in a Valentine's Day theme, try your local party store, craft store, Amazon, Oriental Trading, Michaels, or similar websites. Shop around! Many retailers offer discounts and free shipping. Suggested messages for your card or gift tag follow the item.

Food treats

Like the non-edible counterparts above, you can find many of these items at party stores and online retailers. Place into a plastic zippered sandwich-sized bags or containers specially made for food. Some of these ideas also work well if you are asked to bring in treats for a Valentine's Day party. 

Please note: some schools do not permit students or parents to hand out food in the classroom for various reasons, or only allow certain types of food -- healthy, store-bought, homemade, etc. Before handing out food in your child's classroom, it's a good idea to check with the teacher to find out what the policy is.
