Does your little one get to celebrate Valentine’s Day at school? Does he or she get to trade cute cards and sweet treats with classmates? If so, you know that this adorable tradition can be costly. Those cards with the Disney and Pixar characters can be pretty pricey. Plus, it’s sort of like Halloween in February…your child comes home with a ton of candy or better yet, having already consumed a ton of sugar and practically bouncing off the walls. This year, mitigate the damage to your wallet and your walls (from your child bouncing off of them) by turning to cute, cheap, and non-sugar filled Valentine’s Day DIY gifts like this one.
Valentine’s Day DIY gifts like this one with glow sticks are a win-win-win-win (that’s a lot of winning!). Your wallet gets a break. You and your child get to spend some quality time together picking the glow sticks and putting the printable tags on them. Your child’s classmates get a fun Valentine’s Day treat different from what anyone else will be bringing in. The parents of those kids get one less gram of sugar in their kids. See what I mean, this Valentine’s Day DIY gift is a win all the way around.
Your child can customize this Valentine’s Day DIY gift with the “You Make My Heart Glow” free printable gift tag or by rotating between the 10 free printable gift tags provided with this post. Another option is for your child to make his or her own little Valentine’s notes and attach them to the glow sticks.
