[13] Preschool Valentine Favor Ideas

Links may be affiliate links. See full disclosure here.

I love Valentine's Day because it is a sign that Spring is coming.  Pinterest has been helping me find tons of great ideas for my preschooler to give out as Valentine's and today, I'm sharing those ideas with you.

1. Alison from Oopsey Daisey offers this adorable idea and free printable!

2. Another PBJ themed idea courtesy of Beth from Unskinny Boppy
Valentine's Day gift, we go together like peanut butter and jelly

3. I just love these festive straws for Valentine's Day handouts!

They are from Kinzie's Kreations and offered as a free printable!

4. Heart shaped mini chalkboards from Tonii at Blue Skies Ahead.

5. The folks from Fiskars have this fun treat for Pop Rocks valentines:
valentine's day candy, Valentine you rock

6. Do you ever find Valentine's can be a little bit girly?  Which is fine except it presents a challenge for us moms who have boys that don't want to give out anything remotely pink or feminine.  When I saw this idea on pinterest it seemed like a great one to satisfy the boy crowd!
coin valentine, valentines for boys, money themed valentine, don't ever change valentine, money party favor
From Alexis, visit HERE to see it on her blog.

7. Play-doh is always a hit with the preschool crowd and Queen Mother Blog created this super cute "Doh you want to be my valentine" gift for kids:
Play Doh party favors, play doh valentine, Dough valentines

8. There are lots of "I'm wild about you!" valentine ideas using small plastic toys.  Here was one suggestion from Design Mom
wild about you kids valentine, toy valentines, allergy friendly valentine
The plastic animals run about $7 for a pack of 12 on Amazon.  {See them here}

9. You could also do the Wild About You idea with animal crackers:
Preschool valentine, wild about you valentine, Valentine's Day Gift for kids, Kindergarten valentine
Via Nestling Designs

10. Dandee Designs has the most adorable bug themed valentine! Again you could get the bugs in bulk from Oriental Trading Company, or the Dollar Tree often has packs of 6-8 bugs in their toy section.
"Happy Valentine's Day, Love Bug!"

11. Here's another super non-candy Valentine treat for preschoolers (or kids of any age really!)... GLOW STICKS!

I found similar ones on Amazon:

13. Finally, for all the car lovers out there, Little Blue's Room brings you this "wheelie" cute idea:
hot wheels valentine, preschool valentine, boy valentines

You can get a 16 pack of cars for $10 on Amazon (free shipping with Prime) or a set of 30 cars from Oriental Trading for $12.99 plus shipping.
