Holidays can be full of sweets and junk food. Rest assure, my kids will get plenty of candy from school and other places – so we try to find some non-candy ideas for gifts and treats when we can. We like to surprise the girls with some treats on Valentine’s Day morning.
These treats vary depending on the age of your child, and most are great for year-round treats. Some of these items do include treats, but not specifically candy.
Playing cards / card games
Squishies, slime, etc
Pencils, pens, markers
Playdough / clay / slime
Friendship bracelet kits
Toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash
Earrings, necklace, etc
Hair ties, headbands, hair bows

Supplies for making chocolate-dipped fruit
Healthy snacks (nuts, fruit, etc)
Coupons (movie night, no chores, special dessert, etc)
