Valentine Sunglasses: Such a fun classroom idea for Valentine’s Day that’s a great alternative to sugar and sweets!
If you’re like me, I’m always trying to think of a way to create non-candy-related items for my son’s school treats, for classroom parties. They get SOOO much candy at school parties, and we are literally struggling on a daily basis at home afterward, explaining to my son why he can’t sit and just eat… and eat… and eat… candy.
So one year, I was determined to come up with Valentine’s Day treat idea, that his classmates would love but wouldn’t be just another sugary treat!
Perfect for everyone in the classroom, you can buy little heart-shaped sunglasses, usually as party-favors, very affordably!
Then, you can simply secure one of the little free printables I’ve provided below!
Now, you have a classroom valentine treat that the kiddos will love that’s not full of sugar.
Free Printable Options
When I first made these Valentine’s, I loved the idea of having the “sun” as the free printable tag to attach to the sunglasses.
However, I’ll be totally real…
Cutting out all of those little suns, with the little rays… can be a bit tedious. Possible, doable, but tedious.
So I wanted to create a second option for you, that would be easier to cut out and is just as cute!
Such an adorable free printable tag and if you don’t mind cutting around all of the sun rays, you can download and use this sun printable tag here!
A much easier tag to cut out, these heart-shaped tags include the same message, with that “yellow” pop of color that looks adorable to tie in the color of the sun! You can download the heart-shaped tag here!
How to Assemble Sunglasses
Tape will work as well, it just didn’t stick as well as I’d like when I tried it.
