3 Valentine's Day Classroom Favors (non-candy)

by Lynn Lilly, Jul 12 2022

Valentine's Day is almost here and if your child's school is like my daughters, they are requesting less candy favors for Valentine's Day Celebrations. Earlier this month I shared 3 ideas for Classroom Valentine's Day Card Boxes live on the Crayola FB page and now it is time to share ideas for non-candy Valentine's Day cards and favors. 

All of the Crayola products used today can be found on crayola.com. Have you checked out some of the bulk products you can order. I took advantage of this for Lily's classroom favors. 

Easy Valentine's Day Classroom Cards

Project 1: Kindness Crayons Favor

This is the favor I am doing for Lily's classroom this year. You can do this with any set of crayons but I thought the new Kindness crayons were perfect and they are new so I figured most kiddos didn't have them yet. 

Materials: 

  • Crayola Crayons
  • Crayola Bright Pop Cardstock Pad
  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola SuperTip or Fine Line Markers
  • Crayola Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Ruller
  • Template (open, save to computer and print for free)
  • Pencil

Crayon Valentine's Day Classroom Favors

Directions:

  1. Download and print out the template for the crayon box wrap. Cut it out and trace it on a piece fo Bright Pop Cardstock or construction paper. Lay the template over the piece you just cut and fold along the dashed lines. 
  2. Wrap the template around the box of Crayons. The fold lines will line up with the corners of the box. Use a glue stick to secure the paper to the paper (don't get it on the box) snuggly around the box. 
  3. Cut out two hearts, ones slightly larger and glue them on the wrap of the crayon box. 
  4. Cut out the shape of a small crayon that will fit across the box. Color in the lines and write the name of your classmate. Glue to the bottom of the wrap below the hearts. 
  5. Write a fun message in the large heart like "Color Your Heart Out" and don't forget to sign your name in the smaller heart. 

Project 2: #TrueSelfie Draw-It-Yourself Frame & Colors of the World Crayons

We love the Crayola Colors of the World Crayons and if I had not already sent in sets to my daughter's class earlier this year I would have totally have done this as her Valentine's Day favors. 

Materials:

  • Crayola Colors of the World Crayons
  • Thin Cardboard
  • Crayola Construction Paper and/or Bright Pop Cardstock
  • Crayola SuperTips or Fine Line Markers
  • Crayola Glue Stick
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Painters Tape

Colors of the World #TrueSelfie Valentine's Day Classroom Favors

Directions:

  1. Cut a piece of thin cardboard slightly larger than the box of crayons. The cardboard from the back of a paper pad works well. 
  2. Cut a piece of white construction paper slightly smaller than the cardboard. Glue it to the center of the cardboard to make a frame
  3. Cut a piece of construction paper or cardstock into a small strip about 1/4 the width of the short side of the cardboard. Glue towards the top of the frame. 
  4. Use a marker to write #TrueSelfie
  5. Roll a small piece of painters tape and stick it to the back of the COW crayon box, fold back the top and stick to the center of the frame. 
  6. Cut a strip of construction paper and wrap it around the box and frame. Use tape to secure it to the back of the frame. 
  7. Write a fun message on the strip of the construction paper. 

This is the perfect favor to promote and teach inclusion and self love! Don't forget to share your little artists #trueselfie on social. 

Project 3: Model Magic Pencil Toppers Favors

Materials:

  • Crayola Model Magic
  • Crayola Pencils
  • Crayola Bright Pop Cardstock or Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Crayola SuperTip Markers or Fine Line Markers
  • Arrow Template (open, save to computer and print for free)
  • Crayola Model Magic Cutter Tool

Directions. 

  1. Pick two colors of the model magic. Roll or press out each color to about 1/4" thick. Use the heart cutter to stamp out a heart in each color. 
  2. Place one heart on top of the other so the back one looks like it is peaking out. 
  3. Roll a ball of Model Magic in any color and push on the top of the pencil eraser. 
  4. Carefully push the hearts on to the ball to create the pencil topper. 
  5. Let the Model Magic air dry. 
  6. While it is drying, print, cut out and trace the arrow on to cardstock or construction paper. Cut out. 
  7. Slightly fold the arrow in half long ways (hot dog style) and cut to small slits about 1/4" wide and 2-3" apart. Unfold. 
  8. Once the Model Magic is dry use a marker to write a classmates name on the top heart. 
  9. Slide the pencil through the slits on the arrow. 
  10. Cut out a heart and write a message. Glue the heart to the arrow. 

 

I hope these ideas inspired you and your kiddos! Stayed tuned for creative ideas for the kiddos! 

Happy Crafting!
