DIY Valentines for Preschoolers

I’m in full Valentine’s planning mode as my daughter heads into her first year at preschool. Generally, her school has a “no-candy” policy. They ask that parents send in healthy snacks and birthday treats instead of the usual cupcakes and candy. What I love about these DIY valentines for preschoolers is how simple an easy they are. One quick trip to The Dollar Tree and you have the perfect non-candy valentines.
