Bear Hugs and Teacher Valentines

Here are the Valentines that my two little boys are giving this year. I wanted to get them finished and posted earlier for anyone looking for a cute valentine printable, but extenuating circumstances prevented me from completing them until this afternoon. If you are looking for a last minute idea, you are in luck. If not, you can always pin it for next year.

I was looking for a treat that was allergy-friendly for any kids in the classes that may have food allergies. These are mini Haribo gummy bears and they are peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat and dairy free. They are also extra cute because they are tiny. I was thinking you could use cinnamon bears or even Teddy Grahams if you can't find the mini gummy bears (although I'm not sure about the allergens in those things).

They are super easy to put together. All you need is scissors and a stapler. Cut out the bears and staple them to the bags of gummy bears. Done. My kids didn't bring home class lists this year, so to make it easy they just signed their names to the back.

I also did some quick teacher Valentines. The teachers are always in need of classroom supplies and I know one of the teachers specifically mentioned that she needs dry erase markers so I am sending these with the boys as well.
 I printed and cut out the Valentine cards and attached them to the markers with washi tape (because who doesn't love washi tape?! Am I right?). It doesn't get much easier than that.

Here are some bear hugs and teacher valentines for you to print if you'd like. You should be able to just click on the image and then right click and save as. Let me know if that doesn't work because I saved them in PDF format too and I could share them that way as well.
