2 years ago I wrote this post HERE sharing some ideas on celebrating Valentine’s Day in the classroom.  I had so much fun putting it together and I know so many of you are new here, I decided to bring it back and make sure you have the FREEBIE.  Especially if you love owls!

First up: Food!

Simple Classroom Valentine Treats Food www.amodernteacher.comFind the yummy recipes here:

1. Heart Shaped Rice Krispy Treats

2. Valentine Chex Mix

3. Chocolate Covered Pretzels

4. Heart Brownies

5. Brown Sugar Blondies

6. Valentine’s Marshmallow Pops

I’ve always found classroom parties are best when food is easy peasy.  Kids are so happy they get to eat a sweet or just something different.  They really don’t care or even notice if it is real elaborate (just my observation) (adults on the other hand are totally different :).

At Valentine’s we would always do something easy….like a chocolate fountain.  ooooh—-ahhhh!  The kids LOVED it and it made things SO super easy.  Just get some marshmallows, strawberries, and pretzels to dip…add some toppings and voila –DONE.

Or you can always have the kids decorate a cupcake, sugar cookie, brownie or even something like a fruit kabob (yum)!

Next up: Decor!
