Valentine's Day Boxes, Etc.

Valentine's is quite the interesting holiday in 5th grade. Kids start to think they might like boys/girls, but they are also still kids. I'm always amazed that they still loving doing silly little holiday things.
It's been a few years since I have done a good Valentine box. It's just too easy to give them a boring paper bag. But, this year I found a cute box on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. It was SOOOO easy and Super cute. We used Kleenex boxes, which I spray painted, then the kids put polka dots on them with paint. We added some eyes from egg cartons, and teeth out of white cardstock. They are so cute all lined up on my cupboard.

These are the Valentines I am giving my class this year. I found the printable on Lil Luna. The mustaches are from Amazon--they sound totally disgusting--wax moustaches? Yuck!! I am hoping nobody wants to eat it in class, because I will have to hear about it. But--it was just too cute to pass up.
We are going to do some random acts of kindness tomorrow. I bought some colorful pens and markers. I'm going to have the kids package these up and write on the tag. Then--we are going to go out to the parking lot and put them on the cars. I think the kids will really love it--and who wouldn't like getting a surprise that was useful after a long sugar-filled day at school?
This morning, I put several school supply items on my kids' desks. A pen, pencil, eraser, glue stick. You would have thought they each got an expensive gift. Then, they asked where they came from. Of course I played dumb and said I didn't know---but it is random acts of kindness week, maybe somebody just brought them in. They didn't even question that is was me--which is hilarious. So, now we're going go "pay it forward,"
