Seed Packet Valentine Printables and Seed Match Game

Hello
Kids are getting all sorts of candy this time a year…we just finished with Halloween and my do we have a lot of that left, then Christmas, now Valentine’s Day then it’ll be Easter…seriously, it seems like candy never stops flowing in.

So yes.

I am that mom.

 
I am the mom that loves to have my kids bring non-candy gifts to church (or school) events and I try to give them non-candy gifts at home. Yes, I still allow them to have some of the candy they get from others, but I try to limit it when I can.
Read I Didn’t Hand Out Candy…

 

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It isn’t because we make a big deal about it, because that is far from reality, but I love that it gives our kids and us an extra opportunity to show others that we care about them.

I also love the cheesiness and creativity that goes along with it. 

 

I was racking my brain to think of something that would be just as fun as candy to receive, not go to waste or cost a ton, and offer a learning opportunity along with it.

 

I wanted something that was:

 unique

so much more than a toy or a lollipop

educational

affordable

 

That’s when inspiration hit. I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

These Valentines are so simple to make and are a non-candy gift that keeps on giving.

 

They present opportunities to learn about:

photosynthesis

gardening

responsibility

 

AND kids will often at least try fruits and vegetables they grew themselves!

Bonus: they also encourage parents and older siblings to join in on the activity, creating a special bonding opportunity.

 

If you send these seed packets with your kids, I recommend you make the teacher aware so she can make sure the kids know these are seeds (this is labelled on the printables) and she can find a way to incorporate this with lessons on photosynthesis and growing plants if she chooses.
So…

How do you use these and how can you get a free sample page?
