POP TUBE VALENTINES WITH FREE PRINTABLE

Pop Tube Valentines

Valentine's Day is almost a month away and with shipping times the way they are right now we figured we should get a jump start on getting our class Valentine gifts in order. Last year ou school year was a little crazy but the year before we made personalized FREEZE POP HOLDER VALENTINES that were a big hit.

This year we wanted to think of another non-candy valentine that kids would love. We recently discovered Pop Tubes and thought they would be perfect for a class valentine for preschools, elementary schools or even daycares.

The Pop Tubes are a fun sensory toy that will actually get played with instead of tossed in the trash like some of the other cheap plastic toys people pass out for Valentine's Day. They don't have any small parts so they are safe enough for babies. The tubes are also fairly inexpensive, costing around $1 a piece or 50 cents for the mini Pop Tubes.

It was tricky trying to attach a card to the pop tubes so we made these neat cards with slots to hold the tubes. They say "HAVE A POPPIN' VALENTINE'S DAY." You can download your own for free at the bottom of this post.
