Just wanted to share some of the Valentine's Day goody bags / treats / sweetie bags
I have been working on for the children.....

I have also come up with some non candy / sugar free Valentines Day ideas.

I have got a few more to come yet so stay tuned!

Here are some more have been alittle lazy of late and will post the rest before the weekend sorry guys

Ladybug /lady bird valentines favors
 I'm gonna bug you until your my Valentine!

and many, many more...

 The chocolate ladybugs were from Tesco £1 for around 22

I Wheelie Like you!

 a heathly / non sugar Valentines gift
toy cars

Bee mine / Be My Valentine sweeties

The punch art was made from:

two 1" circles (yellow one sliced)
two 1.5" hearts (for the wings)
two small hearts (for the nose and stinger)

you can see the top of one heart at the top and the heart for the stinger at the bottom.

Don't Burst My Bubble..... Be My Valentine!
Bubble Gum

I don't like bubble gum for children, but some parents are OK with it.

 and these were only £1.99 for a huge carton, so will make lots of Valentines treat bags.

Then a light bulb moment struck, see below.....

Bubbles valentine favours / favors

I'm Banana's About You / monkey Valentine

Sheep Valentines Chocolate treat

I love EWE!
