Our oldest is in a class with twice as many boys as girls this year, so she didn't want to have really "girly" valentines to give out, so we found these and thought "PERFECT!
We purchased bulk FINNISH fish (similar to Swedish Fish but different colors and shapes).
These were sorted out, so every child will get 4, of different colors.
Then we cut out the Valentines that say "So glad we are in the same school".
Then they were all placed in a small baggie, similar to what you would get from the fish or pet store, and tied the top.
She is very happy with the end result, and loved making the Valentines this year, and not just purchasing a package from the store!
In fact she liked them so much she ensured that she gave herself one as well!
