Valentine idea for kids

21112V-119


I remember it like it was yesterday. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. We need to make Valentines for 28 kids in 2 days (or if you’re a procrastinator, 2 hours). 

What you’ll need:

Pink and/or red construction paper
Googly eyes
Glue
Brown yarn
Rubber stamps
Ink pad
Single hole punch
Tootsie roll pops in red or pink wrappers
Plastic bags or other packaging

Step 1: Cut heart shapes out of construction paper. You can make them any size you want. We made ours around 4” high.

Step 2: Use rubber stamps and ink to create a message on the inside of the heart.

Step 3: Make a small hole with your hole punch. Tie a piece of the brown yarn through it to create the mouse’s tail.

Step 4: Grab two googly eyes and place them as shown.

Step 5: Draw on a nose and a few whiskers.

Step 6: Fold the heart/mouse down the center and place a Tootsie Roll Pop inside.


Now that I think about it, string cheese would have been good. I’m not sure what a Tootsie Roll Pop and mouse have in common. Candy seemed appropriate at the time.


We put both mouse and Tootsie Roll together in a small clear plastic bag. You can probably come up with something better. We ran out of time.
