Valentine's Day Ideas for Kid Exchanges

I was looking for quick and easy ideas for Abby's preschool Valentine's Day card exchange and came across these:

Last year, I printed a simple clip art picture on a small white bag, put an organic treat inside and tied it with a ribbon.  A picture of the bags can be found here.

Rocket Candy Valentine 

Hershey’s Kiss mice 

Lollipop Flowers

Tiny Prints has some wonderful 'Classroom Valentine's'.  Now it's getting hard to decide what I am going to do for Abby this year... 

Martha Stewart's Patterned Paper Wrap ideas (think wrapping a couple pieces of gum in pretty Valentine's scrapbook paper).  I might just use this idea this year.  

These Sweet Strawberry Valentine's from Green Apple Orchard are super cute!  

Lots of Valentine Printables over at Skip to my Lou..  

Another Martha idea.  This is called the Sweet Spot Hearts.  She cuts hearts shapes out of the retro candy dots and construction paper.  So cute! 

A box of conversation hearts for each child.  They are still $0.20 a box, right?

Character (Dora, Mickey, etc..) valentine's cards from the local Target store with a Valentine candy taped to the card.  Simple and inexpensive. 

Blank cards from Paper Source or cut some from construction paper.  Get out the art supplies from your art drawer/box, some glue and let your child go to town for some truly handmade Valentine's.

Have you made Valentine's for your children?  What was your favorite?
