Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Children’s Classmates

valentines day gift idea for your children's classmates

I am so excited to share this Valentines Day Holiday Blog Hop with you today with 12 other bloggers. We did this back during Thanksgiving and Christmas and it was a HUGE hit, so we decided to come together for a Valentines one too! I know you are probably used to seeing more fashion here, but I also am wanting to really dabble in some lifestyle/kids crafts ideas this year too, so I hope that those that are moms can be inspired too! It will probably come up 20-25% of my blog posts, that’s the plan anyways, so I hope you enjoy it! For this Valentines Day, I wanted to share a Valentine’s Day Gift Idea for Your Children’s Classmates.

I’ve recently discovered this shop called ZDough and thought it was the coolest thing ever for kids (an adults too)! It is basically play dough, but SCENTED! ZDough is made from food-grade ingredients and the scents are made from essential oils and spices. Playing with it is an excellent tool for improving kids motor skills and exploring their creativity and the scents just add another dimension to it. We’ve gotten to smell a few of the different scents and my son thinks its just the coolest thing, he couldn’t get his nose out of them when we first opened the tins, HA! We love that the play dough doesn’t stain or stick to surfaces, is great for molding and does last a few months if stored properly. The neat thing about them is that you can personalize your own sayings for when you receive them, which makes great gifts. For Valentines Day, they’ve also got these cards you can purchase where you just pop in the Valentines tins and write kids names on them and it’s an instant gift idea! But beyond Valentines day, these are great gifts for kids and they even have a Play Dough of the Month club where you can get a larger tin sent to your house every month with a seasonal color/scent! (You can use code PLAY10 to get 10% off your ZDough order!)

    We usually do something fun for breakfast, a surprise in the lunch box and Italian for dinner. My son’s class would loke those Valentine’s treats- and I could FINALLY look like one of those cool, crafty moms!
