Valentine's Day Treats That Aren't Chocolate


Hole Punch

Ribbon or Stapler

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you’re probably starting to think about what treat to bring to your child’s class to celebrate this day of love. Since a lot of schools no longer allow baked goods, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to think of some healthier candy alternatives to help express the love and affection that is the spirit of Valentine’s Day. While chocolate is delicious (and some may argue fundamental to Valentine’s Day), there are plenty of valentine ideas that don’t result in a sugar high but are just as awesome. Check out some of our favourites:

GoGo squeeZ® Valentine’s Day Pouch Covers: Of course, no Valentine’s Day is complete without our famous Valentine’s Day pouch covers. The adorable, free Valentine’s cards can be printed and wrapped around your GoGo squeeZ® pouches to distribute in your child’s class or to stash in their lunch box on Valentine’s Day. We also created these pouch hang tags for you– all you need are scissors, a hole punch, and some ribbon to attach to your pouches. Simply cut around the dotted line, punch a hole in the top, and tie the ribbon through the hole knotting it closed and draping it over the pouch.

I think you’re a Cutie: Make these adorable, healthy treats for your child’s lunchbox by placing 2 clementines in a little baggy with this note that says, “I think you’re a Cutie!” or “Orange you glad we’re friends?”

So happy you ‘popped’ into my life: On mini bags of popcorn, place these notes that say “So happy you popped into my life” for a cute, healthier alternative to candy.

You rock my socks off, Valentine: Who says that Valentine’s Day gifts must be edible? Why not get Valentine’s Day-themed socks and include this free printable note to go with them? Not only will the recipient get a chuckle on Valentine’s Day, but they can wear the socks all year long.

Blowing kisses your way: Again, moving away from the edible gifts, attach this card that says “blowing kisses your way” to some bubbles for a fun treat kids can take home from class for an afternoon activity– who doesn’t love bubbles?!
