I printed the cards, punched holes in the one side, wrapped embroidery floss around the animals and then looped it through the back of the card and taped it. Done! Easy for the kids to bust open and get to playing.
For Natalie's 1st grade class I wanted to make something that both the boys and the girls would like. Natalie has been obsessed with getting some glow in the dark stars, so that was our starting point. I did a quick starry valentine and printed them out. Then we taped two sparkly crayons (from Target) with washi tape on each card. [background fabric is Constellations by Lizzy House]
Each Valentine also got two glow in the dark stars (found them at Michaels) and then we slipped the Valentine into a clear wrapper. I printed these on white paper just in case the kids wanted to get right to work and do some coloring with the crayons.
I'm excited to send them off to school!
And just for fun, if you want to make some of your own you can download the printables here:
Have a fun Valentine's Day!!
