Every year my kids and I make valentine cards for the kids in their classes. I don't give candy (EVERYONE else does,) but we always do give something. We've given earth shaped playing cards, Chinese yoyos, microwave popcorn, etc... I'm sort of stumped this year. And this year they all want something different. My youngest son (7) wants a robot themed valentine, my middle son (almost 9) wants dragons, and my eldest son (11) isn't quite sure, so I could probably sway him anywhere that "cool" (I do know he's leaning towards Super Mario or Dr Who though.)

Any ideas? I am going to have to make about 25 for each class when you include teachers aides, teachers, students, student teachers, principals, etc.

I'm looking for creative ideas for the cards that can be mass produced. Creative sayings for the themes, and/or little cheap stuff to go in the envelopes or with the cards.

Thanks in advance!

Just a two ideas so far, I'm in the same boat with coming up with ideas.
My first idea is bookmarks, I've done regular paper (decorated) and covered with laminate and I've also done foam bookmarks and my daughter decorated them.
The other idea is homemade crayons. You could melt crayons in a heart shaped pan or any shape pan really.
