It's that time of year again, where parents everywhere have to start thinking about what kind of valentines their kid will be taking with them to give to the rest of the class.

Some years it can be as simple at buying a 24-pack of Spongebob foldable Valentines and being done with it. But if you and your child are thinking of getting a little more creative this year, we at FatWallet have come up with some crafty cute ideas that kids will love! (You could even do some of these for your workplace or as party favors.)

    4. Heart Pie Pops



    For you crafty bakers out there! If you're look for a homemade treat, these pies from Cyd at The Sweetest Occasion are just right!


    5. Felt Fortune Cookies



    If you feel like candy is overrated, here's a non-edible valentine that is just as sweet. Wonder Forest has a craft for Valentine's Day Felt Fortune Cookies! The sample messages may not be exactly fit for classmates, but you and your child can come up with your own fortunes. Easy to make and original, these "cookies" are one of my favorite ideas.


    6. Super Valentines



    For the SUPER parent! The capes and masks are printable, so all you need is cardstock and Sally's favorite lollipop. Take Valentine's Day to heroic heights!


    7. Homemade Conversation Hearts



    Let your kid write their own messages on this homemade version of classic candy hearts (recipe by Jessie on Serious Eats). The messages in this example are pretty sassy, so make sure to use discretion in what's being written to avoid making some 3rd grader cry.
