If you’re a busy parent like me, the idea of a classroom exchange terrifies me. It’s tough enough getting your toddler ready for school everyday! Therefore, I’ve prepared this curated list of 15 Kids Classroom Exchange Valentine’s Day Ideas just for all you moms and dads that do not want to feel like a failure.
I was pleasantly surprised at the haul of goodies my 1 year old brought from day care on his first Valentine’s Day classroom exchange. Apart from the usual heart shaped Dove candy; there was wonderful cards, all kinds of toys and even lovely books.
MY TOP FAVORITES
Most Popular: Heart Shaped Emoji Balls
“These heart shaped emoji balls were cute and so soft. They’re perfect for classroom Valentine’s gifts.”
Cutest Gift: Justice League Valentine’s Day Cards with mailbox
“This is super cute – my 7 yr old loved it. Easy to “assemble” as the box came folded. The cards and stickers were cute and very simple to separate without tearing. “
Best Under $25: Set of 32 Mini Bubble Wands
“These mini bubble wands are super! Just the right size and easy for kids to pop open without having to stick their fingers down in a plastic bottle, only to knock it over and spill everywhere; there is also a small hole on top of the wand so they can wear it as a necklace too.”
