A darling non-candy class Valentines idea, complete with a slap bracelet and free printable that says, “SLAPPY VALENTINES DAY”.
I told myself I didn’t have time this year for a DIY Class Valentines exchange for my kids.
We were going to do what I did growing up, and stop by the grocery store and let the kids pick out a box of traditional class Valentines cards, complete with cheesy sayings, movie characters – and heaven forbid . . . candy. (sigh)
And everything would be ok.
But then my kids began talking about how EPIC last years “I shall call him squishy, and he shall be mine” idea was, and how for one day, they were the coolest kids in class.
Then my brain started going and there was no stopping it . . . I HAD to come up with another EPIC idea! The requirements are always:
- Inexpensive and bought in bulk (I have 3 elementary kids)
- non candy (of course)
- works for boys and girls
- complete with a cheesy saying
“Slappy Valentines Day” fits all the criteria! Kids all over school are going to be strutting their new duds and proclaiming, “This is the most EPIC Valentines ever.”
Just you wait until next year (wink).
WHERE TO FIND THE SLAP BRACELETS
I loved the bright solid colors and the idea that they would last a lot longer than other slap bracelets. They feel pretty cool!
I will say, they do have a bit of a rubbery smell to them, but it doesn’t seem to bother my kids.
ABOUT THE FREE PRINTABLE
We created these cute little printable tags for you to include with this non candy class Valentines idea.
They are designed in black and white so you can print on white paper or colored paper.
They are designed to fill a full page, but you can also change your printer settings to print half page for the smaller size. I wanted to give you both options. I think the full size would work great if you put the bracelet in a cute baggie and stapled the tab to the outside. Hope you like having the options!
I found some multi colored tape at Hobby Lobby and just had my kids stick them on with the smaller printed tags.
