Valentine’s Class Gift Ideas

preschoolears: Mickey Valentines

Are you looking for some simple class Valentine ideas? I love simple ideas. Frankly, I don’t have time to be complicated. So here are a couple simple ideas for some Valentine gifts that kids will love! There are also links to some previous ideas we have shared that kids have loved including our popular Star Wars valentines!

“Sweet” Hersheys Bar Valentines Wrappers

We purchased a pack of card stock paper in purples and pinks. Then we handed out Hershey’s bars with our simple wrapper. To be honest, I’m not sure any of the candy bars made it home since all the kids were so excited to get a Hershey’s bar! We purchased the large box of Hershey’s bars at Costco.

Pop Rocks Valentines

These were a big hit! Kids love Pop Rocks and this simple wrapper makes it a simple and fun Valentine. It is a little bit harder to find a large amount of Pop Rocks. I did these Valentine’s for my son and daughter’s class last year and I purchased a large box of three flavors of Pop Rocks on Amazon. That was cheaper than buying them all at a local store. Then I matched the paper color to the flavor. I used simple craft card stock for the paper.

Disney has launched its big, new promotion for the upcoming new Star Wars movie, “The Force Awakens” that will be in theaters this December. So September 4 has been officially renamed “Force Friday” as stores across the country unveil new Star Wars merchandise and products.

Here is a quick rundown of what you can look at tomorrow near you and also online:



Amazon has its own Star Wars store online and it will unveil new Star Wars merchandise starting tomorrow at midnight. Amazon will offer customers deals on new merchandise as well as other Star Wars items. Expect merchandise to sell out really fast! Amazon is also hosting a giveaway of Star Wars Legendary Jedi Master Yoda Collection Box Edition on Facebook, so make sure you follow them there.

Disney Store

Disney Store locations in New York City Times Square, Chicago and San Francisco (only 3 locations total) will participate in a midnight madness event for fans to buy toys, apparel, collectibles and more. ALL Disney Stores nationwide will open on Force Friday with a special ceremony with an “Unlocking Imagination” ritual.

Most of the Star Wars action will take place at the World of Disney Store at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney and the Once Upon a Toy store at Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney Marketplace. Attendees will have first access to movie merchandise and park-exclusive merchandise including a “Force Friday” logo bag.


A total of 207 Target store nationwide will open at midnight on September 4th with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens items available. Target already has a great selection of cute Star Wars shirts for boys, although I am dismayed at the selection for girls which is none. Here are some Target products that we think are pretty cute! Remember that new merchandise will unveil on 9/4.

We are BIG Star Wars fan so we are so excited for all the new Star Wars excitement and movie! Remember that all merchandise is yet to be seen and won’t be available until tomorrow but I will expect a lot of it to sell out.

I just wish they would have more merchandise for girls. I had to make a shirt for my girls when we went to Disney World and they wore it when they did the Jedi Training Academy. Girls love Star Wars too! (Do you hear that Disney?)


May the force be with you!
