This year my daughter’s class is doing a nice, simple project. They’re not buying Valentines from the store to give to all the kids in the class. Instead, they’re each cutting out hearts out of construction paper.
On one side they’re putting a classmate’s name and on the other side they’re writing something nice about the kid, It has to be nice, even if it’s just a fact like "You’re Musical".
Then the teacher glues the hearts to a ribbon to make a string of kind thoughts about each kid!
This seems much more meaningful than buying Valentines.
