I enjoy making things, and that includes Valentines. I think it is big-time fun to sit around with my kids and come up with ideas for little notes of friendship they can make and give to their classmates every February 14th. Two years ago we made heart-shaped crayons attached to these cute little printables from The Long Thread. Last year we bought a box of fortune cookies, dipped them in almond bark and candy melts, covered them with festive sprinkles, and put them in cellophane bags with a sweet message saying, “I’m so FORTUNE-ate to have you as my Valentine”.
This year, our little tomboy needed something special and not at all girly to give to her fellow kindergartners. She adores Superman, so we came up with a fun idea for a candy-free card for her classmates. We made little Superman logo badges out of felt, hot-glued a bar pin to the back, and attached them to cards we printed that said, “You’re SUPER Valentine.”
This is the kind of project where exactly how you go about it depends a lot on what materials you have/what you can borrow from friends. So, instead of a tutorial, here’s a quick run-down of what we did.
The cards are simple and you could easily make them yourself, but if you’re short on time, click HERE to get a printable version of the cards we used. We printed them on white cardstock, quartered each sheet, and punched two holes about 1″ apart so we could attach the pins.
