I made these sweet valentines for my kids last year using chocolate candies and scrap book paper. Scrap book paper can be found at your local craft stores. You can buy it in stacks of about 200 sheets for about 10 bucks! There are many different patterns in each stack. It is our go-to paper for all card making and other crafts.
These valentines were easy and fun to make. Just cut out cute shapes of your paper, and glue them on the way you want. Add chocolate candies to embellish your design. I used chocolate hearts and kisses.
The kids were delighted to get these when they got home from school on Valentines Day.
Some other fun gift ideas for the kiddos on V-day are:
Coupon Books – make your own paper coupons for the kids to “spend”. You can make them for things like a treat at the store, their choice of dinner night, hugs and kisses (my fav), read a story, trip to the mall (ugh), etc.
Scavenger Hunt – hide clues around the house making sure each clue leads to the next hidden clue. At the end of the hunt, have the last clue point to the “treasure” (a small box of candy or a valentine gift).
Happy Valentines Day! Love to you all!
