TruKid has come up with a list of simple and easy ideas for Valentine's goodies! 1. Baked Goods Pop in a few trays of cookies or brownies, wrap in saran wrap and a bow with a card, and voila! Now you have treats for the class, and a little left over for all of your hard work :) Directions: Find baking book or baking directions online. Buy ingredients. Prepare dough. Bake as directed. Decorate if you want! Wrap the individual cookies. Note: Be cautious of common allergens, especially nuts. 2. Paper and a Pen Cut out shapes using colored paper and scissors.
