‘Tis the weekend to make those classroom valentines if you haven’t already (ahem, like me and my boys). But no worries: Sometimes being a procrastinator works in your favor. For example, edible gifts shouldn’t be made more than a couple of days ahead of time, and since homemade goodies are our favorite way to show the love, we’re actually right on schedule. Phew.
If you’re with me — because you’re a procrastinator, prefer giving Valentine’s Day food gifts, or both — you’re in luck. Over on Cool Mom Eats we have tons of easy Valentine’s Day treats for the classroom that you still have plenty of time to make.

If you and your kids are more into crafting than cooking and baking, one of these easy edible Valentine’s Day projects could be fun. I found Marshmallow Petit Fours that make me swoon every time I see them and Candy Arrows (pictured) that are so clever.
