crafty valentines for kids

2.14.2012

My kids made their valentines this year, as they do most years.  I pinned a few ideas and then asked them to pick from those.  Here’s what they chose.

 

Owl Valentines

Give a hoot valentine, for my owl obsessed daughter, found here.

She picked out the paper colors and I traced the owl pattern and used a circle punch to do the eyes. She cut the owl out, drew on the face and eyes, glued the eyes on, and wrote cute, owl-y sayings on them.  I used my x-acto knife to cut the slots for the pencils and inserted them so that the cardstock wouldn’t rip.

 

Glow stick valentines

Glow stick valentines, for my 4th grader, found here.

Simple free printable that I did some simple editing to in Photoshop (4th grade boys do NOT want their valentines to say ‘love’). All he had to do was cut them out and sign them and bag them in cello bags (we found that was the easiest solution, as they wouldn’t stay attached).

 
bouncey ball valentines

Bouncy ball valentine, found here.

Another easy peasy free printable that the boy had to simply cut out and sign. He did the bagging, I did the stapling.

Check out some of these other fun ideas I pinned for Valentines Day (crafts, decor, foods, cards, etc).  I bigfatpuffyheart Pinterest!!!

 

Happy Valentines Day!
