The perfect Valentine’s card for the classroom

0

Cards for the class Do we do the cards with candy? with tattoos? with stickers? Do we do animal cards? princess cards? sports cards? OR do we make them from scratch?

Anyone that has grade-school kids knows that Valentines Day also means making or buying cards for every child in the class. You may decide it is easier to go buy the cards yourself or maybe you are brave enough to take your child and hope they do not take hours deciding on one of the hundreds of choices in the store.

We have done it all. One year I was so excited about creating the perfect card with my kids for each child in their class. Little did I realize that long after they had fallen asleep, I would be at the kitchen table finishing them up on my own. And yes, the following year we did store-bought!

GET CREATIVE WITH YOUNG KIDS

When it comes to creating craft projects with my two-year-old, I place a high priority on cheap and easy. This simple Valentines Day craft is the best of both worlds!

I took a empty toilet paper roll and bent it inwards on one side until it started to resemble a heart shape. I found some paint left over from a Christmas craft, squirted it on a paper plate, and let me little guy go crazy with stamping! We stamped several sheets of cardstock, which Ill trim down to a card size to send to family and friends. The result is adorable and the craft practically does itself.
