Not sure how it happened but I am now the chronically scattered, last minute Mom. It may have something to do with running this here website and putting lots of hours in over at Momformation. But anywho…good thing I can think fast on my feet! I’m no Martha Stewart but I am creative and very resourceful. I have seen countless Valentine ideas around the web and they all look toooo perfect, there is no way that the kids are actually making these impeccable crafts. My kids are 5 & 7 and as much as I want to control the craft, it doesn’t happen – they want “to do it”. So here is a tutorial for real handcrafted Valentine’s made by real kids!
We made 60 of these in no time. Perfect for classroom Valentines!
Dot Art – We already had. If you do not have, buy at Michaels or Amazon.com
Cardstock paper ($3.99)
Lollipops $2.00 per bag ($6.00)
Total Cost for 60 Valentines = $10.00 and some change.
It’s pretty self explanatory (that’s how easy it is) but…
1. Fold card stock in half and cut out hearts.
2. Have kids apply dot art – let them go wild!
3. Have child sign their name or write a message on the hearts
4. Punch 2 holes in hearts
5. Place Lollipop through the holes.
