DIY Valentine’s: Pencils Instead of Candy + FREE Printable!

WHAT? Valentine’s already? It’s crazy that I am already talking about Valentine’s Day! But, it’s never too early to plan and get a head start especially if your little ones have 25+ kids in their class!

This year I wanted to do one Valentine with candy and one without. Keep your eyes peeled next week for my candy valentine if you are looking for an adorable fun Valentine that involves candy! This week though, we’re all about pencils!
