My oldest is currently obsessed with fish. He loves to fish and loves his pet fish. So naturally, for Valentine's Day he wanted to do something with fish.
There's tons of fish sayings out there, "you're o-fish-ally the best" "you're a great catch" ... I could go on. But I saw this saying and really liked it "Glad we're in the same school."
I found a little fishbowl online and dragged it over to edit. I added the saying and a cute little fish. Then a heart right in front of those big fishy lips. My son wrote each student's name in the top of the fishbowl and then wrote his name in the actual fish!
We grabbed the sandwich baggies from Wal-Mart and a big bag of Swedish Fish (you could do individual bags of Swedish Fish, I just couldn't find them locally) and plopped them in with the card.
I love how they turned out. He loves them too. So I thought I'd share them with you.

And if you didn't see these I did a couple years ago, here's another quick and pretty cheap Valentine idea. And this one is sugar free! At the beginning of every school year I stock up on wooden rulers (I usually have them on display for August & September) and then use them for Valentines that year.
|These were the first ones I did, I just printed "You Rule" on some red card stock)|
Here is are a couple printables for ya. One is black and one is red. They are super easy and fun. And I like that they are not a sweet treat, but a fun tool kids can use for practically anything!
Well, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Know you are loved and appreciated and special!
