Valentine's DIY Crafts!

I came across these and thought that they would be a perfect addition to your child's classroom parties!!! These would be great if you want a different option to candy to pass out. 

Just like their edible cousins, these foam conversation hearts will let your child get right to the point of her Valentine's messages.
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam
  • Permanent markers
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Pencil

Be My Valentine: Pencil Toppers

  1. Cut a 1- to 2-inch heart from craft foam. With a permanent marker, print a short message on the front and the name of the giver on back.
  2. Now poke an inch of the pipe cleaner through the bottom of the heart, bend it down, and twist it back around the remaining length of pipe cleaner.
  3. Coil the pipe cleaner tightly around the pencil. Then gently pull up on the heart so that part of the coil bobs freely above the pencil, with several loops anchored around the eraser end.

And here is one that had candy in it!

Friendship Blossoms

Here, two classic Valentine's Day gifts — flowers and candy — combine to make one sweet treat.
  • Scrapbooking paper or card stock
  • Scissors
  • Lollipops
  • Tape
  1. For each, cut three heart-shaped petals, two leaves, and two flower centers from scrapbooking paper or card stock.
  2. Poke a small hole in each, crease the petals as shown, and slide the pieces onto a lollipop stem. Tape the bottom to secure.

    You're a sweet heart
    Our friendship is blooming
    Be my bud-dy
