Do you dread holidays that revolve around candy?
You and me both, mama. And when it comes to Valentine’s Day, teachers aren’t big fans of the candy overload either. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a little treat. After all, it’s important for little ones to learn about making wise choices with sweets. But really … let’s balance the candy with some other fun Valentine surprises! I hope these fun ideas will get your creativity flowing as we countdown to February 14th!
