Since our local elementary school has tightened food rules to restrict giving candy etc, we have been trying to think up some easy ideas for non-food Valentines gifts for my daughter’s first grade class.  Here follows some multi-age, inexpensive ideas to fit the bill.

* Fabric Hearts (image shown above). Can be made out of scrap fabric and filled with dried lavender.

* Heart-shaped bird treats.  Pop a mixture of gelatin and bird seed into heart shaped tins.  Check out this easy recipe for more details.
