This year, I am thrilled to embark on a crafting adventure with Rosie, where we will create delightful Valentine gifts for her classmates. The dilemma lies in choosing between crafting with candy, engaging in playful games, or delving into something educational. Though my inclination is towards an educational endeavor, why not embrace the spirit of variety and incorporate all three into our creative mix?
MAJOR MOM POINTS.

Rosie’s classroom embarks on an adventurous journey through the realm of letters, where every passing week demands the arrival of a captivating object commencing with the designated letter. In the realm of “F,” I summoned Rosie to present a magnificent stuffed animal flamingo. As a connoisseur of challenges, I take pleasure in transforming this task into an intriguing test, much to the delight of the educators who expressed their astonishment, as the rest of the children predictably arrived with an array of firetrucks.
Not this mama!
I enjoy being unique. My spouse and I turn it into a fun challenge to decide which item Rosie should bring in next.
Oh, the delights of being a parent….
As we embark on the journey of creating 16 delightful presents for her fellow classmates, I delved into the depths of Pinterest and stumbled upon a plethora of irresistibly cute Valentine’s Day gifts that would undoubtedly be an ideal fit for her peers.
BONUS: Most of them have free printables!
1. Valentine Donut Printable
Okay but honestly, who doesn’t adore donuts?
Imagine the joy of savoring an array of donut flavors, such as the lusciousness of a strawberry-infused donut, the decadence of a chocolate delight adorned with a blush pink frosting, or the timeless charm of a classic donut adorned with delightful pink sprinkles!
