Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do something sweet. And there’s nothing quite as sweet as HERSHEY’S Chocolate.

Finding Valentine’s Day activities for kids can be tough, whether it’s something to do at home or an activity to keep a classroom busy. But a surefire sweet way to do things is to transform HERSHEY’S Candy into crafts.

KISSES Candy Grams

Let’s start with a classic goodie bag. This is a super easy way for kids to put together Valentine’s treats for classmates or a party. Adding personalized messages to printable candy gram templates is an easy way to make a bag of HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates extra special.

KISSES Candy Grams


  • Cut the tags out and write a message on the back of each one.
  • Use a hole punch to put a hole in each tag.
  • Pull a piece of ribbon through the hole in each tag. Use the ribbon to tie your goodie bag full of HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates shut.

Heart Pencil Toppers

If you’re looking for something a little more involved than the standard goodie bag, you can try these heart shaped pencil toppers instead. You can make them together as treats for classmates, or as a special Valentine’s surprise. Just craft a heart-shaped template and then cut construction paper to match the heart shaped doilies and REESE’S Peanut Butter Hearts.

Heart Pencil Toppers


  • Create a template for your heart-shaped pencil topper using a piece of scrap paper.
  • Place the template on top of construction paper, trace and cut out several hearts.
  • Glue the doilies to the back of your hearts, being careful to leave an empty space at the bottom for a pencil to slip through.
  • Use an adhesive dot to attach a REESE'S Heart, then put the pencil topper onto a pencil.
