This Madeline’s first Valentine’s Day where she will be has celebrating in a school/daycare setting. For her fellow classmates Valentines I knew I wanted to make something adorable and yummy. However, when you think about a typical Valentines for kids- it usually involves some form of candy, which just isn’t appropriate for one year olds. After much searching on Pinterest, I came across the idea of using pouches of applesauce instead. In addition to these being candy free, it was perfect because Madeline is currently obsessed with anything that comes in a pouch. 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need:
Squeeze Pouches (any flavor or brand you prefer)
I made the tags on my computer (you can use word, publisher, etc.). The say, “Valentine- you’re main my squeeze!” I cut the tags out and glued them on to pink cardstock for a nice added touch! I punched a hole at the top and using baker’s twine I tied the tags around the pouches cap. They came out super adorable!
But- what about her Valentines for her teachers?! I didn’t want them to be left out. In my opinion, coffee is a must for watching just Madeline, let alone eight kids, so I thought I would get a Dunkin Donuts gift cards. I stumbled upon this cute (and free!) printable online and couldn’t resist. I just printed, cut them out and taped it all together and we were good to go! Super cute and super easy!
They were a huge hit at daycare! And the best part was they were super cost effective and fun to make!
