10 Affordable, Adorable School Valentine Ideas

Once upon a time, Valentine's Day meant a romantic, candle-lit dinner.

These days, it means scrambling to assemble appropriately cute treats for the entire class.

And do we ever have ideas for you.

Now that LearnVest has its very own Pinterest boards (you should follow them!), we're gathering inspirational quotes to keep you on track with your finances, delicious recipes to save you time and money, fodder for our (and your) vision boards and, in this case, lots of creative Valentines for kids.

Because there were so many adorable choices, we narrowed down to our top picks: Most of these Valentine's treats involve at least one cute pun, yummy candy or addictive toy. But there's a good mix, in case your classroom doesn't allow snacks (and we avoided peanuts altogether).
