Valentine Crafts: Beary Special Valentine Treats

beary-special-valentine-treats-1Valentine crafts for kids are always fun, entertaining, and educational. I came across this adorable idea using Teddy Grahams from my dear friend at Saving Toward a Better Life.

These are particularly great if you have a toddler in preschool and you want to give treats to the class without having to resort to candy that the little ones shouldn’t have. Plus, it’s completely frugal. You can make Valentine’s for an entire class of students for around $3.00!

The next couple weeks will be packed full of fun Valentine crafts for kids!

We purchased a LeapFrog LeapPad2 for my youngest son for Christmas, so of course one of the first things I did was look for free LeapPad apps! You will automatically receive a free app or ebook of your choice when you register and connect your LeapPad but I also found 2 additional free LeapPad apps.

To get your two free LeapPad apps, start up the LeapFrog Connect software. Next click the “App Center” tab, then click “Redeem Code” and login.
