Valentines Day for kids can be a huge kick to the budget sometimes. Extra money is spent on food, parties, cards, and other activities. But I’m here to help you learn just how you can save money and still let your kids be the talk of the class this Valentines Day.
Make Your Own Valentines Day Cards
Instead of going out and buying Valentines to give away, have your kids make their own. The recipients of these will be so pleased with the work that your children put into them, and you will have a project for some extra family time and to keep the kids busy all day.
Bake Instead of Buying
If your classroom allows (as I know some schools want everything prepackaged), bake healthy treats for your kids to take into the classroom. You can make up a double batch so you have some goodies at home as well.
Did you happen to save last years Valentines Day cards? If you did then you can cut off the fronts of them and glue them onto construction paper to make even fancier homemade cards.
Look for Free Entertainment
If it’s feasible with the classroom teacher, offer to provide poems, music or other activities for the class party instead of bringing in items that must be purchased.
