Valentine's Day is around the corner and my kids are so excited for it! But trying to be conscious of our sugar intake, as well as what we offer our friends, I wanted to find treats this year that didn't include candy.
I'm sharing what we chose to do for class treats, as well as what I'm gifting my boys for Valentine's Day this year.

Personalized Coloring Pages
No Candy Needed! These cute mini coloring pages are by a JANE seller and can be customized with your child's name. There were about a dozen designs to choose from and my boys each got to select which they wanted to use for their class. It'll have their name on the "from" and includes 24 coloring cards with 24 self seal bags!
We are including in the bag these great Rainbow Pencil Stackable Crayons that come with 12 colors.
This treat was affordable, fun, and completely cavity-free. PLUS, easy for mom to enlist the kids' help in assembling. Gotta love an easy treat holiday!!
For My Boys
I am obsessed with Squishmallow pillows!!! They are so cute and comfy and honestly help me sleep so good - even if they are made for kids.
It's always been mommy who has gone through at least 4 squishmallows, and it's crazy to say, my boys have never had their own. (One reason is because its our dog's favorite stuffy to destroy. )
I'm breaking and finally getting them their own because I hope to do some traveling this year. It's always hard to leave them, and I'm hoping if I'm gone, while they are missing me, having a special "from mama stuffy" to squeeze will help.
Plus it's time they had one anyway!
I was hoping to embroider their initial on each, but don't know if I'll manage as the one I selected has no flat area.
I went with this cute teal sloth 12" squishmallow and they both have the same thing so they don't argue. I think they are going to LOVE IT! Let's just hope Roxy doesn't get to them!
Kids Gratitude Journal
We try to make special days feel fun, while still keeping it simple and affordable. I feel good finding ways to celebrate that don't include calories or sugar. We can always enjoy those when we want, but hooray for getting more thoughtful in gifting this year!
Let me know what other sugar-free ideas you enjoy!
