Candy-less Valentines for the Kiddos

I don’t know about you but I hate all of the candy that is involved in many of today’s holiday celebrations. Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter… What person, kid especially, needs that much sugar?!?!  I just don’t get it.  So, as I’ve gone done this road before with one of my previous posts dealing with Easter {click here for the post}, I felt it was about time to dedicate one to Valentine’s Day as well.

As an elementary teacher and now momma-to-be, I can’t help but be absolutely disgusted by the number of candy Valentines out there that saturate the shelves of stores across the nation during this time of year. However, with the addition of Pinterest, parents everywhere can now share healthier alternatives for their little ones to share with those that are special to them.

So, without further ado, here are 14 of my absolute favorite candy-less Valentine ideas:
